CAMPTON, Maine (AP) - Officials at New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest have extended the deadline for those who want to apply to be an artist-in-residence this summer and fall.

The new deadline is May 1.

The residency program - run by the White Mountain National Forest and the Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire - offers artists from a variety of genres the chance to pursue their art in a forest environment.

The program began in 2011, in honor of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the Weeks Act. The act enabled the federal government to purchase land in the eastern U.S., leading to the creation of the White Mountain National Forest and more than 50 other national forests.

Applications forms can be found online at www.aannh.org .
