Artist At Sea Residency Application Now Open!
Big News! We are continuing this unique partnership with OSU that allows for a visual artist, writer or musician to spend 10 days on an oceanic research vessel interacting with a scientific team gathering data on the dynamics of mesozooplankton food webs at different depths and during different seasonal currents off of the Oregon and California coast.
Here's what past Artist at Sea Resident Rebecca Welti said about her experience, "The exchanges of ideas and varying perspectives of life, work and the ocean over several days provided a uniquely stimulating environment for an artist. I drew, photographed and planned sculptures based on the waves, the microscopic plankton and the excellent library of marine science books. Many dedicated and playful individuals onboard made the trip a fascinating and complete adventure."
The application deadline is Oct. 31 for the Feb. 28-Mar. 13, 2019 cruise. There is an additional (optional) 10 day residency at Sitka from Mar. 13- Mar. 22, 2019.
