Our theme for 2018: Convergence

We’re open to your interpretation of this theme and encourage original works to use this as a conceptual framework.  Artist teams encouraged to apply.

At Camp Long, we have an assortment of locations and opportunities to feature temporary works: cabins, stages, green spaces (forested and open fields), and a lodge.  If you’ve never been to the park, we encourage you to visit prior to submitting your application.
