      WEST BRANCH, IOWA— Herbert Hoover National Historic Site seeks writers,
      composers, and visual and performing artists for the park’s 2009
      Artist-in-Residence program. The Artist-in-Residence program is open to all
      professional American artists whose work can be inspired by the history and
      beauty of Herbert Hoover National Historic Site. The park offers two
      residencies each of two to four weeks from May through September. For more
      information about the Artist-in-Residence Program and how to apply, contact
      Adam Prato at (319) 643-7855 or visit the park’s website: www.nps.gov/heho.

      The 2008 Artist-in-Residence program featured photographer Linda Staats and
      radio dramatist Will Anderson. Each artist donated artwork created during
      their residencies this summer. Ms. Staats’ photograph “First Light on the
      Prairie” is on display at the Visitor Center along with works from past
      Artists-in-Residence. Dr. Anderson’s radio drama script “The Son of West
      Branch, America’s Great Humanitarian” is available on the park’s website:
      www.nps.gov/heho. The script is in the public domain and may be used for
      production. Please contact Adam Prato at (319) 643-7855 if you are
      interested in producing it.
