Entry Deadline: 9/30/15
Days remaining to deadline: 129

Since 2001, a total of 60 accomplished artists, writers, and composers have participated in the Artist-in-Residence program at Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska. Following a 10-day residency, each volunteers to lead a public outreach activity with visitors and to donate one piece of finished artwork to the program collection. For a two-year trial period beginning with this open call for residencies in 2016, the program will explore a preference for digital and performance-based donations rather than physical pieces for the program collection. Artists are challenged to create artwork and activities for visitors that offer a fresh and innovative perspective of the park drawn from their own experience. 

In recent years, the program has expanded opportunities for artists to include a winter residency program and a dedicated residency in music composition. A first fine arts photographer was selected to participate as a visual artist in 2015. Each summer, greater direct interaction between artists and the visiting public now takes place through afternoon outreach activities in public spaces outside the Denali Visitor Center.

With the welcome addition of a new interactive iBook catalog and several new gallery spaces, artwork donated to the program collection enjoys a larger life in the public eye. Current gallery spaces include the Denali Visitor Center, Eielson Visitor Center, Murie Science and Learning Center, and  the Walter Harper Talkeetna Ranger Station, as well as Alaska Public Lands Information Centers in Anchorage and Fairbanks.

The Athenaeum Invitational celebrates the arts of Virginia, Maryland, and District of Columbia in the Athenaeum Gallery in Alexandria, VA. It is a theme-based event featuring the works of both specially-invited artists who have exhibited in the Athenaeum Gallery in the past, as well as works selected through a call for submissions open to anyone living or working in Virginia, the District of Columbia, or Maryland.  A $1500 prize for the best work will be awarded to an invited artist, and a $1000 prize will be awarded to an artist from the open call. The show is juried by Athenaeum Gallery Director, Twig Murray.  Prize winners will be selected by Jack Rasmussen, Director and Curator of the American University Museum at the Katzen Center in Washington, DC.

Theme

Cole Porter’s 1934 song, “Don’t Fence Me In” serves as the inspiration for this year’s Athenaeum Invitational.  Beginning with a sheriff threatening to send him to jail,  ‘Wildcat Willie’s’ response forms the base of the song.  It is a heartfelt and sentimental paean to great expanses of the wild west and open space – and portrays an abiding hatred of being fenced in. When sung by Roy Rogers in the 1944 movie, Hollywood Canteen, it embodies stereotypical movie cowboy-ness.  Also taking it at face value, Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters also made popular recordings in the forties.  More recently artists including Willie Nelson and Leon Russell, David Byrne, and Chumbawumba have made all kinds of creative covers.  The Athenaeum encourages artists to search out a number of covers of the song.

Artists are asked to respond to or reflect on “Don’t Fence Me In” in a creative and aesthetically excellent manner.
