Trout Lake Station Now Accepting Applications for 2020 “Artists in Residence” Program

Calling all painters, poets, photographers and other artists! The Center for Limnology’s Trout Lake Station in Boulder Junction, WI is now accepting applications for its 2020 Artist in Residence Program. This residency is part of the station’s “Drawing Water” program which brings together artists and scientists to explore the relationships between people, northern lakes and landscapes in a changing climate and a changing world.

Trout Lake Station is a year-round field station operated by the Center for Limnology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Located in the Northern Highland Lake District in northern Wisconsin, the station provides access to a wide variety of aquatic ecosystems and their surrounding landscapes.

It is also home to one of the National Science Foundation’s Long Term Ecological Research sites examining long term change on lakes near Trout Lake Station. The residency seeks to document arts and humanities responses to change over time in these lake environments. 

The Drawing Water Artist in Residence is open to visual artists, writers, musicians, and performance artists who have specific interests in exploring the relationship between people, northern lakes and landscapes in a scientific context.
