From October to May, the Sitka Center’s Residency Program provides 25 to 28 artists, writers, musicians, and environmental scientists with opportunities for sustained reflection, cutting-edge artistic creation or scientific research, and community involvement. We are inviting community members to come hear what the writers- and artists-in-residence have been up to, as their time at the Sitka Center comes to a close.
Presentations begin at 1:30pm in the Boyden Studio at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.
