“To offer residencies to new and established artists of recognized excellence from around the world to pursue their creative process in a wilderness environment.”
The Artist-in-Residence program at Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park is open to artists and artisans whose work can be influenced by this unique northern wilderness setting. It offers writers, composers and all visual and performing artists and artisans the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the Porkies and express it through their particular art form.
A rustic, timber frame cabin provides accommodations for the artist in residence. “Dan’s Cabin” was built as a tribute to Dan Urbanski, founding president of the Friends of the Porkies and award winning photographer.
