Medford, ORE. – Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument is now accepting applications for its summer Artist-in-Residence program. Selected artists are provided with a beautiful environment in which to generate artistic works and share their works with the public.
Artistic expertise, professionalism, and creative uses of artistic media are encouraged. Selected artists receive a one to two-week residency at CSNM facilities during the summer. All artists are encouraged to apply for a chance to participate in the program, and there is no preference given to any one particular style or medium; artists from previous years have produced works ranging from panoramic watercolors to musical compositions.
