If your art could be inspired or informed by two weeks in the beauty and untouched forests of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, the Artist-in-Residence program at Porcupine Mountain Wilderness State Park may beckon. Stay in a rustic cabin without electricity or running water (though it has gas light and stove). The timber frame cabin has room for two people.
Artists selected must donate one piece of work and give a talk or workshop.
Deadline to apply for this year is March 31, but since they must be mailed, they need to be completed days earlier. The program is offered through the Friends of the Porkies, a nonprofit organization. (Photo: Michigan Department of Natural Resources)
