"Art in the Park is a wonderful experience to be able to visit such a beautiful National Park, share one's talent with visitors, exhibit your work and be inspired."
-Jacqueline Grummett, 2013 artist in residence
Art in the Park 2014
Pukaskwa National Park is on the search for artists to be an artist in residence for the 2014 season of Art in the Park! The intent of the Art in the Park program is to give artist's special access to be surrounded with breath-taking scenery while gaining inspiration from Pukaskwa's wild shore. The artist and the artwork they create are used to instill an emotional connection and deeper understanding of Canada's national parks.
Artists are chosen through a rigorous selection process designed to provide a balance of artistic mediums and experience. The artists in residence are encouraged to interact with park visitors sharing vision and techniques through talks and workshops. Through artists' participation, Parks Canada hopes to expand the way the park is seen by local residents, visitors, staff and audiences beyond park boundaries.
THE APPLICATION SUBMISSION PERIOD IS NOW CLOSED. We have an exciting line-up of artists chosen for the 2014 season of Art in the Park. Stay tuned!
