Become a Wilderness Composer or Artist

If you are a composer, painter, sculptor, songwriter, photographer, poet, or artist in other disciplines who is interested in participating in the Wilderness Act Performance Series through the Artist-Wilderness Connections we’d LOVE to hear from you!

There are many exciting opportunities for artists of ALL disciplines to find inspiration in nature.  You may learn about some general details in the Artist-Wilderness Connection Menu.

The collaborations will involve a dedicated yet gentle commitment throughout the summer.  There will be 3 – 4 field seminar days in June which will be specific scheduled days.  These days are the core of your inspirational journey in which you must participate in.

** The June Field Seminar Schedules are listed on each Venues profile page. **

The month of July will be the time for composition and artistry through personal reflection, contemplation, and returned visits to the park.  All musical compositions and artistic creations must be finished by early August.

Limited space is available.  All artists will be considered on an individual basis.

If you are an interested Composer or Artist, after becoming familiar with the time commitments and details on this website, please email me,, the following information:


1.  A brief statement of why you’re interested in the WAPS.

2. An online link to samples of your art work or music.

3. A bio and resume w/contact info.
