Three named to inaugural Artists in Residence Program

The River Raisin National Battlefield Park has selected three local artists for the park’s inaugural Artists in Residence Program. The artists are Darlene Belair, Brant Georgia and Brandy Gerber.

The Artists in Residence Program is offered in more than 50 national parks.

“Artists have created art in national parks since the late 19th-century, when famed Hudson River School painters captured the majestic views of our nation’s western parks,” the battlefield said. “Today, the sights and sounds in national parks continue to inspire artists in more than 50 residency programs across the country providing artists with unique opportunities to create works of art in varied natural and cultural settings.”

Programs are available for visual artists, writers, musicians and other creative media. Programs vary by park and are extremely competitive.
