Applications are being accepted through Sept. 30 for the 2019 artist-in-residence program at Denali National Park.

The program is dedicated to exploring new ways for visitors to experience Denali.

Each year about six artists, writers and composers are invited by the park superintendent to spend 10 days in Denali at their own expense the following summer.

Those selected are given a permit for limited access along the Denali Park Road and time alone in a historic ranger patrol cabin. Their challenge is to create works for visitors that convey a fresh and innovative perspective of Denali drawn from direct experience.

They are also required to lead a public outreach activity with visitors and may choose to donate their finished work from their time at Denali to the program collection.
