Artists can apply for residency

Alaska State Parks seeks artists to apply for its first-ever Artist-In-Residence Program to be held this June-August at the Ernest Gruening State Historical Park and cabin, 25 miles north of Juneau.

The program encourages artists to create work inspired by Alaska’s state parks. It also will offer visitors and the general public an opportunity to see state parks through the eyes and ears of contributing artists. Successful applicants will have an opportunity to stay for up to two weeks at the historic cabin. 

The deadline to apply is April 10. Artists will be asked to donate an original piece of artwork inspired by their time at the cabin and will be required to host a community workshop during the residency. Travel to Juneau and transportation to the cabin is the artist’s responsibility. For more information and to request an application, contact David Griffin at 907-269-8696 or, or visit
