The C-Scape Artist Residency

The artist in residency program at C-Scape dune shack was launched in 1995.  Regina Binder and Tom Boland worked with The Compact to acquire the shack based on Binder’s master’s thesis.

The program offers 3 three-week residencies for artists who feel their work would be enriched by being in the dune landscape.  In creating the program, the Compact continues to strengthen the connection between the arts and the environment.  Artists selected are required to talk about their work with the public twice a week when the Park Service leads guided tours to the shack.

Workshop participants will learn about the program, see the evolution of artists’ applications and have an opportunity to be jury members in the artist selection process.  Participants will break into groups to evaluate artist in residency applications (names withheld) and then discuss who they picked and why.
