Supporting stewardship of the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness 
and fostering appreciation of wild lands.

Artists in Residence

We are thrilled to announce this year's Artists in Residence! 

The Artists in Residence program is back for the summer of 2017! Our unique program will provide these two artists a 7-day immersion in the wilderness. Each artist will be stationed either at the Cooke City forest service cabin, the Meyer's Creek Cabin, or the Box Canyon cabin. This immersion provides time for the artists' thoughtful reflection and development of their work.  With any luck, the solitude and beauty of uninterrupted Wilderness will serve to inspire musical compositions, prose, photographs or paintings.

Liz Wilk

Raised far from the mountains of Montana in the prairie state on the south side of Chicago, Liz Wilk has made her home in Bozeman, MT exploring the greater Yellowstone ecosystem for the last four years as she completes her Master of Fine Arts in the Science & Natural History Filmmaking program at Montana State University. Liz has worked on projects ranging from a documentary on how folklore can help conservation and how they affect the relationship between people and the land to a full-dome film about gravitational waves. She is currently working on her thesis film, a 360/virtual reality interactive film about the Beartooth Highway and little known places nearby the road off the beaten path. The goal of her film is to make places along the highway, near and far, accessible to viewers unable to visit due to illness, age, disability or socio-economic means in order so they may feel better connected to the land and the wilderness despite unable to see these places in person.
