Sherry Lee Short, professor of Drawing and Illustration in the School of Art, has been selected as a 2018 artist-in-residence in Isle Royale National Park.

Isle Royale received 104 applications for the 2018 program. Four artists were chosen, each for a two-week residency. The jury’s selections were based on artistic integrity, creativity, ability to reside in a wilderness environment, and how an artist would relate and interpret the park through their work.

The Isle Royale Artist-in-Residence Program provides artists the opportunity to become part of a long-established tradition of interpreting national parks through art. The program is open to artists whose work can be inspired by the park’s unique character, and it offers writers, composers, and all visual and performing artists the opportunity to capture the moods and magic of Isle Royale through their particular art form.
