Over the past few years, the National Parks Arts Foundation has partnered with Dry Tortugas National Park, west of Key West in Southern Florida, to create an artist-in-residence opportunity in pristine isolation, at Loggerhead Key. Loggerhead Key is the westernmost of 7 islets of the Dry Tortugas, and features a number of historic sites, and is a natural habitat for many unusual species.
