CAMPTON, N.H. (AP) - Applicants are being sought for the annual White Mountain National Forest Artist-in-Residence program.

The residency is a celebration of the connections between forest, landscape and culture. The deadline is March 3.

The program offers visual and performing artists, craftspeople, writers, composers and media artists a chance to pursue their particular art form while being inspired by the surrounding forest and sharing their work with the public.

The program was started in 2011, in honor of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the Weeks Act, which enabled the federal government to purchase land in the eastern United States. That led to the creation of the White Mountain National Forest and more than 50 other national forests.
