Artist at Pine Needles
The Artist at Pine Needles residency program invites natural history artists or writers to spend 2 to 4 weeks to immerse themselves in a field experience, gather resource materials, and interact with environmental scientists and the local community.
The setting for the Artist at Pine Needles project is the James Taylor Dunn Pine Needles Cabin, located just north of the village along the St. Croix River.
Applications will be accepted from writers and visual artists who focus on environmental or natural history topics. Participants will have an opportunity to interact with environmental scientists and to create links between their art, the natural world and the sciences.
As part of the program, artists will be encouraged to design an outreach project to share their work with the local community and to contribute an original work for the benefit of the research station.
Housing and rustic studio space is provided for the artists' choice of a 2 to 4 week residency.
How to apply
Application materials for each summer's residencies are posted here during the first week of January. Applications are accepted until the end of February (check annually for exact dates), and artists are notified of the selection decision by the first of April. Two or three residents are selected each year.
