Art and Natural Resources Residency

We are no longer accepting applications for this project (closed February 6). 

The selected artist for residency will be announced in mid-March.

The Art and Natural Resources Residency (ANRR) is a short-term residency program to engage a local artist and allow them to embed with the JCPRD Natural Resource team to learn, respond artistically, and amplify this important work. The 2024 Art and Natural Resources Residency (ANRR) will focus on the role of water in Johnson County and the importance of clean water and quality watersheds as part of our regional ecosystem’s resilience. The art will respond to this theme and be placed somewhere along the Mill Creek Steamway within JCPRD.
