Artist Residencies in America's Parks

Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site

 

Aspet, built about 1800 as an inn.

 

Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site features the home and studios of the great sculptor, Augustus Saint-Gaudens

(1848-1907) and is one of only two units of the National Park Service dedicated to a visual artist.

For over twenty years this site has sponsored a sculptor-in-residence program, which is the

longest running artist residency in the Park Service.

 

Sculpture and grounds.

 

The sculptor-in-residence is an important part of the site's educational and interpretive program.

Visitors can see how a sculptor works, and also have the opportunity to ask the artist questions.

This has proven extremely helpful in visitors' understanding and appreciation of sculpture

exhibited at the site.
