This year your support can change an artist's life. Help support the arts through Joshua Tree Highlands Artist Residency. JTHAR is a 501c3 non-profit that provides free studio space and living accommodations for artists to create new work and focus on their individual projects. Your donation will help JTHAR continue to invite artists to Joshua Tree and create and learn from the vibrancy of California.
Our last resident, David Hamlow, developed a regimented practice during his stay in Flamingo Heights, CA. This included daily sculptures, collages and installations created from native plants and found objects extracted from a local dry wash.
David is selling assemblage sculptures created during his residency. All proceeds will directly benefit JTHAR. Click Artist website: HERE to view the work. Thank you for the support!
David Hamlow is a sculptor and installation artist based in Good Thunder, Minnesota. Over the last 15 years, David’s work has focused almost exclusively on installation environments created using material detritus resulting from his own consumption. His focus is on the observation and recording of the experience of being a living human and its translation into temporary environments that underline the hidden enormity of individual experience and impact.

Founded in 2007, JTHAR is a nonprofit artist residency that fosters creativity through opportunities for exploring, experimenting, quiet reflection, engagement and cross-cultural exchange with the vibrant local artist community. We establish spaces where inspiration happens on a daily basis, so artists can do the work of innovating, changing the cultural landscape and generating a fresh look at the way we connect to each other and to the world. Each year we invite 4-6 artists from around the world to create work amidst the beauty of Joshua Tree National Park.
Group Artist Residency Period: Seven Weeks - April 27 - June 15, 2021

JTHAR supports the CDC, state and local guidelines for limiting exposure to COVID-19 and is committed keeping our small rural community safe. Each artist can work in uninterrupted solitude as living quarters and studios are private and resident schedules will not overlap. We ask our participating artists to practice social distancing, wear a face mask and diligently use hand sanitizers and disinfectants during your stay. Together we can work together to continue to keep our local infection rate low.
