Artist-in-Residence Program 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. Each year, a number of artists will be selected for residencies lasting two or three weeks. Each artist will contribute an original piece of work representative of their residency to the permanent collection of the Friends of the Porkies. Donated pieces will be delivered within one year, framed, bound or otherwise gallery ready and will offer the public an opportunity to gain new insights and enjoy the park through the artists’ unique interpretations. During their residency, each artist will share their experience in one public program, demonstration, talk, workshop, etc. This will be done in conjunction with the park’s interpretive programs. The presentation will depend on the artist’s medium, interests and experience and will be approximately one hour in length.
