S.C. State Parks looking for 2023 resident artist

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Wednesday, November 30, 2022

The 2023 South Carolina State Parks Artist-In-Residence program is inviting you to apply!

The Artist-In-Residence program provides artists with the opportunity to gain inspiration from the natural and cultural resources of the South Carolina state parks.

The South Carolina State Park Service will provide the use of a cabin to selected participants for a one-week period. Transportation to and from the selected park will be the responsibility of the artist. Artists may also choose to stay in their own camper or RV at the selected park.

In return, participating artists in both programs will deliver an original artwork representative of their stay at the park within 90 days of their residency. The original work will be displayed in the cabins and other facilities throughout the park, as deemed appropriate by the park manager.

Collaborative proposals will be considered for both programs. These programs are open to South Carolina residents and non-residents.

After being selected, the residency date will be determined by the availability of the cabins for their assigned park. Artists will be responsible for contacting their assigned park for their cabin reservation.

Each park is hosting only one or two artists for the 2022 season. Placement at parks will be determined by the medium that each park is interested in displaying.

Qualified mediums include photography, painting, pottery, textile, mixed media and metalwork.

The following parks will be hosting artists for the 2023 season:
