The Entrada Institute will award $1000 to a writer or artist to support work that encourages dialogue and discovery about the natural treasures and peoples of the Colorado Plateau. Applications for the Entrada 2013 Artist-in-Residence stipend are due by October 10, 2012.

The Entrada Institute, a nonprofit organization from Torrey, Utah, has a two-fold mission: to support artists, writers, humanities scholars, and earth and social scientists in their development of new works, and to promote understanding and appreciation of the natural, historical, and cultural heritage of the Colorado Plateau.  In addition to the artist-in-residence program, Entrada funds scholarships to Wayne High School students and presents a series of Saturday evening events during the summers in Torrey, Utah.

Entrada has awarded the annual artist-in-residence grant to artists and writers working on a variety of projects for over a decade. In 2012, Dr. Marden Pond, a composer, arranger, conductor, producer, author, and educator, used the grant to create a musical multimedia tribute to the Colorado Plateau titled “Visages in Stone – Voices in the Wind.” The 2011 stipend went to noted art historian Dr. Will South to write an essay for publication about the life and art of the late artist V. Douglas Snow.

If you are interested in applying for the Entrada 2013 Artist-in-Residence award, please send a non-returnable portfolio of your work and a letter or email that describes your proposed project and demonstrates how it supports Entrada’s mission.
