Confronted with ecological urgency, many artists are increasingly addressing environmental and place-based issues in their work. Place-based artist residencies can provide support to artists, researchers, and writers whose work engage and negotiate a land stewardship, or performance of ecologicalethics. What, then, is the role of artist residencies in local land stewardship? How do artists challenge the public to reconsider their relationships with places? In this thesis, I address these and other related questions through a case study of the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology in Otis, Oregon, focusing on the Crowley Creek Collaboration, a multidisciplinary, place-based residency project. This thesis examines the organizational dynamics of an artist residency and considers how a local community engages in a residency-initiated exploration of place.
