The Winnemucca District of the Bureau of Land Management and Friends of Black Rock-High Rock are seeking artists to reflect on Black Rock Desert’s cultural significance and the National Conservation Area’s history and scenic beauty.
Through April 1, artists of all disciplines—including but not limited to painters, photographers, sculptors, cinematographers, poets and musicians—can apply for the Black Rock Artist in Residence program, which runs from May through July in Gerlach. Those selected will learn about the NCA while depicting the variety of cultural and natural resources of the Black Rock Desert, including historical structures and artifacts, cultural landscapes and wildlife.
Three showings of the artwork will be displayed in Winnemucca, Gerlach and Reno at the end of the program, and posters of selected pieces will be distributed in NCAs across the country.
The two-week program provides lodging, supplies and a $700 food stipend. For more information, visit blackrockdesert.org or call Stacey Wittek at 775-530-6137.
