Chaco Culture AiR: October 2020 – Call For Artists

The National Parks Arts Foundation announces a call for artists for the Chaco Culture AiR: October 2020, an all media artist residency at Chaco Culture National Historical Park. Call open to any level artist working in any medium including writers, poets, filmmakers, video artists, new media, screenwriters, sculpture and 3D artists, and visual artists. Outdoor site specific installations are generally not accepted due to the delicate setting and may require special permissions and permitting for the National Park Service.

Deadline: 29 Nov 2019

The Chaco Culture National Historic Park  October residency is one of two residencies offered to artists at the park in 2020. The residency is inside the park, in National Park Service housing, and there is no studio. Artists will work plein air or in their lodging. This is a very isolated location.

Located in the four corners area of New Mexico and founded as an Antiquities Monument in 1907, Chaco Culture National Historical Park was operated for most of the 20th century as an anthropological storehouse of knowledge and evidence of the Chacoan Culture. This beautiful and isolated complex preserves the historical traces of the sacred ancestral culture to many of the existing pueblos of the Southwest. The park is a Dark Skies certified location, an ideal place for astronomy and astrophotography. The Monument expanded to its present boundaries and park designation in 1980.

The park is located in the open plains of Northwestern New Mexico, sharing borders with the Navajo Nation and BLM land.  It is approximately one and a half hours from the closest city, Farmington, and two hours and forty minutes from Albuquerque. A vehicle is definitely required for this residency. (Lyft or Uber are never practical workarounds in the beautiful, isolated open spaces of this corner of New Mexico.)

Chaco Culture AiR: October 2020 Artist Benefits

Selected artists will receive a $1000 stipend and one month housing at NPS Housing in the National Park. This is a rare privilege usually available only to occasional visitors and anthropologists. The residency includes at least one public event at the park which allows the artists to engage with park visitors and discuss their work. Selected artists are eligible to donate a single artwork through NPAF that will (by mutual agreement) be a part of the NPS’s historic art collection. The National Parks Arts Foundation’s residencies were recently named one of 7 Artist Residency Programs ‘with career launching power.’ NPAF and this park were recently the subject of a Hyperallergic Feature about the usefulness of art in the National Parks as a way to counter rampant oil and gas development strategies.

The Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park (HAVO) summer residency is one of three residencies offered to artists at the park in the summer of 2020. The residency is just outside the park.

Located on the Big Island, Hawai’i, USA, HAVO is one of the jewels of the U.S. Park System. It is home to Mauna Kea and Kīlauea Volcanoes, some of the most sacred places in the Hawaiian Islands, and many unique and precious flora and fauna. A vehicle is required for this residency. (Lyft or Uber are not practical workarounds on the Island.)
