BLM offering artist-in-residency program

ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Bureau of Land Management is opening an artist-in-residency program at the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument this summer.

The Mail-Tribune said that three artists will each get two weeks to capture images of area east of Ashland that was designated as a national monument in 2000.

Applications will be accepted through March for a one- to two-week stint in the monument in June, July and August. Two alternates also will be selected.

Artists will need to bring their own art supplies and food. They can stay for free in a trailer at the Hyatt Lake Campground, but local artists can commute to the monument.

Following their residency, the artists will donate at least one digital image of their work to the monument and give a 45-minute presentation.
