TONGASS - The Voices of the Wilderness artist residency programs are held on the Chugach and Tongass National Forests in Alaska through summer 2012. The program is open to artists and art professionals in all media - visual (two and three dimensional: photographers, sculptors, painters), audio (musicians, singers, composers), film (video/filmmakers), and writers (poets, fiction, essays, storytellers). Participating artists are paired with a wilderness ranger and actively engage in stewardship projects, such as research, monitoring and education. The idea is to give artists a sense of the stewardship behind America's public lands. Each artist will assist with some basic ranger duties. An emphasis will be placed on exploring how to communicate nature's inspirational qualities through artwork.
