Death Valley National Park Artist in Residence ($1000 Stipend) 2019

A month in America´s Most Iconic Park (with $1000 stipend).

DESCRIPTION OF RESIDENCY PROGRAM
Artists will stay at the historic Stovepipe Wells Village, in a comfortable room, with all the amenities, including internet and use of the heated pool and other facilities, including the Badwater Saloon and Toll Road Restaurant, as well as the Stovepipe Wells General Store.

Stovepipe Wells is close to the Mesquite Flats Dunes, and less than an hour away from Beatty, NV and the legendary ghost town of Rhyolite, NV. It's convenient location puts you very close (approx 30 mins) to such sights as Zabriskie Point, Furnace Creek, and the Park HQ. Also nearby are the famous Tecopa and Panamint Hot Springs, as well as the legendary Amargosa Opera House at Death Valley Junction.

DESCRIPTION OF RESIDENCY LOCATION
Iconic, and much celebrated by artists, Death Valley is the hottest and driest place in North America due to its lack of surface water and low relief. It is so frequently the hottest spot in the United States that many tabulations of the highest daily temperatures in the country omit Death Valley as a matter of course. However January is the ideal time to visit and work in the park when daytime temperatures are in the 70s, and lows drop to the 40s at night. Death Valley is also one of ideal locations for astrophotography and it is a Dark Skies Location, prized for its isolated low light pollution vistas.
