Art Gallery & Competition

The Friends of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, in conjunction with the Harney County Migratory Bird Festival, sponsored the annual Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program. Wildlife Refuge Specialist Carey Goss and a local artist spent eight days traveling to schools in Burns, Diamond, Frenchglen, Crane, Drewsey, Riley, Double O, and Fields. The program combines history, art and science and served almost 600 students in grades K-8.

This year, in the face of Covid-19, we are modifying this program to engage our rural students through a virtual gallery of their artwork. We hope you enjoy the creative genius of our local youth. Enjoy!

This program has annual costs of approximately $1,200. We are proud to share this with you and hope that you will consider supporting the Youth Artist in Residence Program.
