Icicle Fund CHA CHA Artist in Residence: Wenatchee
Due November 1

As part of its 20th anniversary celebration, the Icicle Fund is hosting two Artist-In-Residence events to celebrate the Conservation, History and Arts (CHA) of North Central Washington at the Methow River (rescheduled to October 2-4, 2020) and the Wenatchee River (rescheduled to May 21-23 2021). The goal of the residencies is to honor, celebrate and record the unique environmental aspects of each location, inspired by revisiting past work created by poet William Stafford in the Methow Valley (1993) or Watershed Artists in the Wenatchee Valley (2001).

Applications for the Wenatchee Residency will be available September 1-November 1st. Artists of any discipline in NCW are encouraged to apply. Up to 16 artists across disciplines will be selected for each location, and will visit up to ten selected locations during the weekend. They will document their surroundings through visual arts, writings, music, and other creative mediums, with the opportunity to draw from changed conditions of the environment as illustrated by Stafford and Watershed Artists. After the residency, a traveling exhibit will be scheduled to showcase the work produced by participating artists.
