Badlands National Park Residency (South Dakota)

Open Call for Residency Applications

People are drawn to the rugged beauty of the Badlands. These geologic deposits contain one of the world's richest fossil beds. Ancient mammals such as the rhino, horse, and saber-toothed cat once roamed here. The park's 244,000 acres protect an expanse of mixed-grass prairie where bison, bighorn sheep, deer, pronghorn, prairie dogs, and black-footed ferrets live today. Artists have long had an impact on our perceptions of national parks. Dramatic photographs, paintings, and descriptive essays helped to stimulate the establishment of many national parks and continues to foster an appreciation of them today. The Badlands Artist in Residence program offers professional artists the opportunity to translate preservation of this place into images that evoke responses from those who may or may not visit the park.
