Good Hart Artist Residency is located just off of M-119, a scenic heritage route referred to as the Tunnel of Trees in Northern Michigan. The area’s unique natural ecosystems include the Lake Michigan shoreline and coastal dunes, inland lakes, and large forests. The region is home to state parks and more than twenty-five publicly accessible nature preserves.

The residency program provides visual artists and writers from diverse backgrounds and experiences with space to create and time to immerse themselves in their work and in the scenic landscapes of Northern Michigan. Through partnerships with regional cultural and environmental organizations, the Good Hart Artist Residency also provides opportunities for the community to meet the artists, see their work, and engage them in conversation. This press release contains information about the artists who received residency awards for the upcoming 2018 season.

Announcing the 2018 Artists-in-Residence at Good Hart Artist Residency: We are excited to announce the awarded residencies for the 2018 Good Hart Artist Residency program. We received 113 applications representing artists and writers from eleven countries and twenty-five states across the U.S. From this applicant pool, the selection committee awarded residencies to four artists and one writer.
