The National Park Service at Death Valley is NOT participating in this residency. 


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. 


ABOUT THE LOCATION: 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 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 Stovepipe Wells VIllage, Artists or Artist couples must schedule their arrival between 2-5pm on weekdays, and must have their own transportation for the month of the residency.

NORTHERN NEW MEXICO in October of 2020. 

Containing the remnants of three different fortresses of the period 1860-1880, Fort Union National Monument, located in Mora County near Watrous, NM, was the hub of commerce, national defense, and migration at the final stretch of the Santa Fe Trail.

The fort is close to the high plains and grasslands of Eastern New Mexico, the amazing Historic Victorian Town of Las Vegas, and the Santa Fe Trail outpost of Wagon Mound.
