Learn the ins and outs of applying for art grants with Bob Killen.
Photographers have been creating art in national parks since the late 19th century. Today, the National Park Service offers Artist-in-Residence (AIR) programs in over 50 parks. These programs offer artists the opportunity to pursue their artistic discipline while surrounded by inspiring landscapes. Selected artists are provided park housing for the duration of their residency, typically two to four weeks. Bob Killen, a National Park Service Artist-in-Residence, Adobe Certified Instructor, President of Mojave National Preserve Artists Foundation, and Director of National Park Service Photographic Expeditions programs, will lead the lecture. Bob teaches how to apply for AIR grants, presenting several park examples. He will also explain the benefits of becoming a National Park Service Artist-in-Residence.
Event is free and open to the public.
