Each year professional or aspiring artists are selected to spend one to two weeks at Lacawac Sanctuary and Biological Field Station. During their residencies, artists are free to produce artwork in their chosen manner and medium. The institution provides rustic housing and some studio space. Deadline: 1 May.
Since its inception in 1966, the mission of Lacawac Sanctuary has been to preserve Lake Lacawac, its watershed, the surrounding forest and historic structures; provide a venue for ecological research, scholarly interaction and the training of scientists; provide public education on environmental and conservation issues; and conserve open space in Pennsylvania. For over 40 years, Lacawac has accomplished this mission by offering a diverse set of natural areas, facilities, and programs for K-12 and post-secondary educators and students, area residents, scientific researchers, artists, and summer visitors to the region. By bringing scientists together with the general public, Lacawac provides an excellent opportunity for interaction among these user groups.
