Application Deadline February 7th, 2018

Notification: March 15th, 2018

For further details see the NPAF website : http://www.nationalparksartsfoundation.org/

Applicant submission:

FIRST ask yourself......

Are you able to be alone with your artist partner, on a beautiful island, in seclusion for a month, having "packed-in" all the food and supplies you will need? Of course you will be living in a well equipped shared house, with plenty of living space. Most modern amenities exist but this island paradise is "off the grid" for internet, phone, TV and the like. There are limited visitors to the island as well as the occasional visiting naturalists (who you may be able to accompany) observing such things as the rare Tortuga or other fauna and flora. You must be totally self sufficient, have insurance, be self realized and prepared to be art focused in this natural paradise.

This is for artists NOT faint of heart or persnickety.

NOTE: DUE TO THE INTENSE, ISOLATED NATURE OF THIS RESIDENCY WE ARE ACCEPTING ONLY JOINT APPLICATIONS; EITHER ARTIST COUPLES OR TWO ARTISTS WHO ARE WILLING TO TOLERATE EACH OTHER FOR THE DURATION.

IMPORTANT DATES:

Applications Due: April 20th, 2018

Finalist Selection(s) Announcement Date: May 30th, 2018

Alternate Selection(s) Announcement Date: May 30th, 2018

Artist in Residence Term:  January 1st - Jan 28th, 2019

Public Programming (Lecture/workshop/presentation): TBA

Stovepipe Wells is close to the Mesquite Flats Dunes, and less than an hour away from Beatty, NV and the legendary ghost town of Rhyolite, NV. It's convenient location puts you very close (approx 30 mins) to such sights as Zabriskie Point, Furnace Creek, and the Park HQ. Also nearby are the famous Tecopa and Panamint Hot Springs, as well as the legendary Amargosa Operahouse at Death Valley Junction.

Death Valley is the hottest and driest place in North America due to its lack of surface water and low relief. It is so frequently the hottest spot in the United States that many tabulations of the highest daily temperatures in the country omit Death Valley as a matter of course. However January is the ideal time to visit and work in the park when daytime temperatures are in the 70s, and lows drop to the 40s at night. Death Valley is also one of ideal locations for astrophotography and it is a Dark Skies Location, prized for its isolated low light pollution vistas.

This is a no studio residency, so artists will have to work in their lodging or plein air. A vehicle is required to get around the large park area.

This residency includes:
A pass to Death Valley National Park
Use of the Guest Facilities at Stovepipe Wells, including heated pool, etc.

For ease of coordination and communication with the Park Service, Artists or Artist couples must schedule their arrival between 10-3 on federal work days, and must have their own transportation for the month of the residency.

So, Video Art, Installation, Collage, Photo-manipulation, Sound Sculpture, Performance, Dance, Screendance are definitely encouraged, anything that can free the mind, widen experience and still connect people to the Park experience in tangible and intangible ways.

Please Read Carefully the TERMS and CONDITIONS below, before applying...



An artist (or artist couple) are selected as the Chaco Culture National Historic Park Artist in Residence at the park for a one month term. This application is ONLY for 2017 October Residency.

 

The Chaco Culture AiR is an in-park residency at a fairly remote and isolated location. A reliable vehicle is crucial for this residency. The park is located in northeastern New Mexico, an hour and a half from Farmington, NM, 3 hours from Santa Fe, and consists of an extensive complex of pre-columbian pueblos or ceremonial structures (at least 11) and a number of other sacred and or preserved sites. The Park is also an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

 

The artist in residence may be granted a studio (location TBD), and a venue for at least one Public Presentation of a workshop, lecture or concert. A large Yurt at the park may be used for presentations or workshops. The Artist may also use this location as a studio (again, if this does not conflict with other prior scheduled usage.) The Artist’s public presentation will take place in the Auditorium at the Park’s Visitor’s Center. Please indicate in your application if you would like to give more public presentation(s), while resident at the park. The artist must commit to the entire month term that they will be applying for.

For ease of coordination and communication with the Park Service, Artists or Artist couples must schedule their arrival between 10-3 on federal work days, and must have their own transportation for the month of the residency.

All insurance including automobile, health, accidental and insurance to cover all art, supplies, personal items is the sole responsibility of the artist as any and all insurance will not be provided by NPAF or the NPS or concessionaires. Proof of insurances must be provided to NPAF. Any terms herein may change and are subject to the approval of the NPS and NPAF. Any Visas required by the US or any other government will be the responsibility of the participant.

 



If the program is cancelled before commencement, no refunds of any fees, including application fees, will be issued.

 

An ‘Artist Couple’ is defined as creative partnership -- not necessarily spousal or legal -- between two people for the purpose of making artwork at the park. Artists may not consider any additional party a part of the AiR program unless they were included as an “artist couple” in the artist’s original application and proposal. Residency, housing and other park amenities are exclusively for the artist use only.

 



It is National Parks Arts Foundation’s hope that works produced during this time will characterize Chaco Culture National Historic Park for present and future generations and offer park visitors and the general public the opportunity to see the park's heritage through the creative vision of artists.

 

Public Interaction:

Artists must address, in their proposal, how they plan to engage visitors daily, in plein air and/or during studio time. Any ideas for public interaction may be considered but these must be authorized explicitly by NPS.

 

The Artist should expect and welcome visitors to the studio and the public inquiring about them during studio hours or when they are doing art en plein aire.

 

NPAF must be able to contact the artist at all times prior to the residency, unless otherwise arranged. If response is not received from artists within 48 hours, NPAF will assume that the artist is not obligated to the program and NPAF must make alternate arrangements.

 

Artists will abide by all park rules, NPS rules and regulations concerning all aspects of the park and its environment. In addition, the Artist is expected to be courteous to all public, visitors and NPS staff during their stay. For further park information please visit: http://www.nps.gov/chcu/index.htm or the National Park Service site at: http://www.nps.gov/index.htm

 

In addition, any Artwork that the artist intends to display in the studio or other public spaces needs to be “museum ready” in other words, displayed with museum and/or archival quality.

 

Special Requirements: The Artist acknowledges that if their work includes a scientific or cultural component that involves advice or information from Park Staff or any of the archeological or anthropological research programs around the Chaco Culture park resources, it is their responsibility to contract separately for such. There are many people that work around the park in many capacities and they may be willing to talk informally as an advisor. However, Park staff are not generally available to the resident, and should be treated courteously and with consideration to their time and expertise.

 

Artists may present, at minimum one, one-hour public program, workshop, concert or lecture during their residency at Chaco Culture National Historic Park, which can be presented either at the park or another venue as deemed by NPAF and NPS staff. This presentation (above) may be the same program repeated and will reflect artist’s medium, interest, and park experience. If Artists wish to do more participatory engagement with the public, that is encouraged. Put forth specific ideas for public interaction in the application. Workshops are open to the both visitors and the public at large. Artists must provide their own car and liability insurance, supplies and equipment for these presentations. We also encourage artists to give public presentations in their own community about their residency experience in Chaco Culture NHP to further broaden the reach of the program’s purpose.

 

As an introduction and fuller appreciation of park resources, each AIR participant may be able to take advantage of the Chaco Culture National Historic Park Library, archives, and the natural and cultural collections as part of the park’s Museum Program. Further, each participant may be able to discuss with park staff the diversity of park resources, themes and historic culture of the park. This process may be inclusive of advice and recommendations of cultural advisors and interpretation rangers. This process is necessary in order to educate and maintain the integrity of the park and to honor the cultural riches of New Mexico’s ancient Chacoan heritage.

 

Artists need to provide their own art supplies, equipment, personal items and reliable transportation. Artists should be self-sufficient, independent and enjoy working in an isolated environment and able to commit to the full AIR term. The artist is expected to comply with all park regulations and policies governing park employees, volunteers and visitors. Chaco Culture National Historic Park is very close to the Navajo Nation and is subject to fire danger and or closure dues to fire or smoke. Artists must comply with park directives and be prepared for such an event.

 

All AIR participants may be required to accept further conditions and contracts including but not limited to; Gift and/or donation agreements, images releases for their person and/or art work, codes of conduct, special use permits, J-1 visas,rules and regulations, housing agreements, volunteer in the parks contracts and any other apparent and unforeseen agreements required of any governing entity, namely the NPS, NPAF and/or NPS concessionaires.


 

J-1 visa applications may be required for participation. NPAF will be able to direct you to the International office and guide you through this simple process.

An island in the Florida Keys mostly to yourself…

Application Deadline June 1st, 2018

Notification: July 30th, 2018

For further details see the NPAF website : http://www.nationalparksartsfoundation.org/

Applicant submission:

FIRST ask yourself......

Are you able to be alone with your artist partner, on a beautiful island, in seclusion for a month, having "packed-in" all the food and supplies you will need? Of course you will be living in a well equipped shared house, with plenty of living space. Most modern amenities exist but this island paradise is "off the grid" for internet, phone, TV and the like. There are limited visitors to the island as well as the occasional visiting naturalists (who you may be able to accompany) observing such things as the rare Tortuga or other fauna and flora. You must be totally self sufficient, have insurance, be self realized and prepared to be art focused in this natural paradise.

This is for artists NOT faint of heart or persnickety.
