Panel: Artists from past Artist Wilderness Connection residencies
Topic: “Celebrating 20 Years of Artist Wilderness Connection in the Bob”2024 marks the 20th anniversary of Artist Wilderness Connection, a collaborative program between the Flathead National Forest, Hockaday Museum of Art, Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation and Swan Valley Connections. Each summer this residency places artists in backcountry Forest Service cabins to create work in a beautiful, remote wilderness setting. Over its twenty years this program has hosted a broad range of artists and styles – painters, writers, musicians, sculptors, poets, photographers, and more. Since the program’s first summer in 2004, 56 artists have participated in venturing into the wilds to gain inspiration and dive deeper into their craft.

This panel will be moderated by Alyssa Cordova, Executive Director for the Hockaday Museum of Art. Artists TBA soon!
