Fort Union National Monument Artist in Residence

Fort Union National Monument Artist in Residence

This Deadline Expired: Wednesday, October 7, 2020

The National Parks Arts Foundation is inviting applications for its Fort Union National Monument Artist in Residence Program.

The program, located at Fort Union National Monument, in Mora County near Watrous, New Mexico, was the hub of commerce, national defense, and migration at the final stretch of the Santa Fe Trail. The richly evocative traces of a post-Civil War era adobe fort, it became a National Monument in 1954 under the Eisenhower administration. The location is close to historic Las Vegas, New Mexico, the Great Plains, local sights like Wagon Mound and Montezuma Castle, and is only an hour and half away from Santa Fe, the art capital of the Southwest.

The program will offer one Artist in Residence term, October 4 through 28, 2021, and one veterans residence term, April 5 through April 29, 2021. Artists working in media/genre may apply for one of the 2021 residencies at the monument, which offers a venue for a workshop or public lecture about the artwork or process (if the artist is interested in public interaction or performance), as well as an opportunity to donate artwork, through NPAF, that may be included in a national collection or exhibits. Though there is no stipend, no fee to apply. (Note: there is no Wi-Fi at the location.)
