6 artists get residencies at Rocky Mt. Nat'l Park


ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (AP) — A Wyoming artist and musicians from North Carolina and Nebraska are among the six people chosen for the artist-in-residence program at Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado this summer.

The six will be given two-week residencies at a cabin in the park during part of the summer and share their work with the public. Park officials say the artists can draw inspiration from the park while also translating its purpose as a place of pleasure and preservation into their work.

The artists chosen this summer are photographer Andy Nelson, of Manhattan, Kan.; water media artist Joy Keown, of Laramie, Wyo.; writer and photographer Rob Wilson, of Novi, Mich.; photographer Stan Honda, of New York City; composer Bill McCormick, of Carrboro, N.C.; and composer David Boye, of Lincoln, Neb.
