Artists sought for U.P. Porcupine Mts. program

SILVER CITY, Mich. (AP) -- Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park in the western Upper Peninsula is seeking applicants for its artist-in-residence program.

The program is open to artists, composers, performers and artisans whose work can be influenced by the 65,000-acre park along Lake Superior. The residencies are for at least two weeks. Artists get the use of a rustic cabin on the Little Union River and if requested a three-night back country permit.

Applications must be received by March 31. They are for the spring, summer and fall of 2011 programs as well as the winter of 2012.

Details and applications are available on the website of the nonprofit group Friends of the Porkies, which sponsors the program along with the park.
