Waubonsie State Park Residency / Deadline: August 31
Waubonsie State Park awards approximately 6 residencies to visual artists per year. Residencies range from 1 month to 3 months in length. Artists work in a variety of media. Residency awards include living and studio space in Waubonsie State Park, which is in the Loess Hills region of Iowa. The studio location is identified together with the Park Manager based on the needs of the artist. The artist has access to work tables, handtools and a fully equipped woodshop. Artists have access to a vehicle to perform residency-related activities during their residency pending approval and coordination with the Park Manager.
Artists are required to deliver at least one public program per month of their residency and to donate one piece of art to the park at the conclusion of their stay. The Waubonsie State Park Artist in Residence Program is supported by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, Golden Hills RC&D and the Friends of Waubonsie State Park.
