The Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument is a protected area of more than 100,000 acres not far from us in Ashland, Oregon. It covers the area where the Siskiyou Mountains meet the Cascade Range.
And now there is an opportunity for a resident artist:
The Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument Artist in Residence Program is committed to supporting artistic efforts that support the public lands. 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.
Participating artists are asked to donate to the BLM the use of an original piece of artwork from their residency in the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument. The artist will retain both the original and the copyright. CSNM is especially interested in artwork relevant to its mission. Artwork may be used in exhibits and for educational purposes. In addition artwork may be used by non-profit partners for items such as postcards, posters, and similar items. During their stay, artists share their vision in one 45-minute public presentation. Come join us for this fantastic opportunity!
