Haleakalā National Park Artist in Residence August 2018

$2000 for an Arts Residency in Georgia O´Keeffe Country on the Island of Maui, Hawai´i.

We are excited to continue our artist-in-residence program at Haleakalā National Park. This is a unique dramatic environment for artists in all media to flourish and to inspire new breakthroughs in process and result. Famously, this is also O’Keeffe country as the modernist legend Georgia O’Keeffe spend some productive months painting on Maui in the late 30s.

Maui, Hawai’i, USA. Haleakalā has some of the most otherwordly landscapes in all of Hawaii. The Park boundaries include the dormant lunar landcapes of Haleakalā, crucial Native Hawaiian Historical Sites, and landscapes leading to Maui's legendary coastlines.

One of the oldest parks in the National Park System, Haleakalā is located on the south end of Hawaii’s Big Island. Originally created as part of the Hawai’i National Park in 1916, along with its’ sister park, Hawai’i Volcanoes, it became an independent park in 1961. The summit area of the park includes the famed Haleakalā Crater, the summit of the volcano, and the area surrounding the summit. The other park segment is the Kipahulu section.

Visitors cannot drive directly to this section from the summit area; they must take a winding coastal road that travels around the windward coast of the island. This part of the park lies within the lower part of Kipahulu Valley. It is separated from the summit area of the park by the upper portion of the valley.

This section of the park features more than two dozen pools along Palikea Stream in the gulch called ʻOheʻo. These pools contain rare native freshwater fish. Visitors may choose to swim in these pools, or they may choose to hike a trail that takes visitors up to the base of Waimoku Falls.

One Month, from August 1st-August 30th, 2018
