Forest Park Forever is accepting applications for its Forest Park Forever Artist in Residence Program.

There will be up to three residencies available for regional artists of all disciplines and backgrounds — from poets and choreographers to painters and photographers and beyond. Each artist will receive a $3,000 stipend from Forest Park Forever to produce their work or series of works, plus a budget to create a public event at the end of their residency. None of the artwork will be permanently displayed in Forest Park.

Artists will be expected to work on-site in Forest Park for 10 hours per week for three weeks and are encouraged to collaborate and learn from the horticulturists, gardeners and other professionals from Forest Park Forever and the city. Residencies will take place between May and September 2016.
