Stovepipe Wells is close to the Mesquite Flats Dunes, and is less than an hour away from Beatty, NV and the legendary ghost town of Rhyolite, NV. This convenient location puts you very close (approx 30 mins) to such sights as Zabriskie Point, Furnace Creek, and the Park HQ. Nearby you will also find the famous Tecopa and Panamint Hot Springs, as well as the legendary Amargosa Opera House at Death Valley Junction.

Death Valley is the hottest and driest place in North America due to its lack of surface water and low relief. It's so frequently the hottest spot in the United States that many tabulations of the highest daily temperatures in the country omit Death Valley as a matter of course. Death Valley is one of the most ideal locations for astrophotography and it is a Dark Skies Location, prized for its isolated low light pollution vistas.

This is a no studio residency. Artists will have to work in their lodging or plein air. A vehicle is required to get around the large park area.

RESIDENT PHOTOGRAPHERS may present, three one-hour public programs, workshops, or lectures during their residency at Death Valley National Park, which can be presented either at the park or another venue as deemed by NPAF and staff. This presentations (above) may be the same program repeated and will reflect artist’s career and professional interests, and park experience. Workshops are open to the both visitors and the public at large.

Artists must provide their own car and liability insurance, supplies and equipment for these presentations. We also encourage artists to give public presentations in their own community about their residency experience at Death Valley National Park to further broaden the reach of the program’s purpose.Park staff are not generally available to the resident, and should be treated courteously and with consideration to their time and expertise. Photographers need to provide their own art equipment, personal items and reliable transportation. Artists should be self-sufficient, independent and enjoy working in an isolated environment and able to commit to the full AIR term. The artist is expected to comply with all park regulations and policies governing park employees, volunteers and visitors.
