The state of Maine is looking for an artist to spend two weeks in solitude in one of the most remote parts of the state.

The state is taking applications for the Allagash Wilderness Waterway Visiting Artist Program. The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry said the program “provides artists with the opportunity to immerse themselves in a remote, rustic wilderness, to interpret and share their experiences through their medium.”

The selected artist will receive lodging at Lock Dam Camp, which is a one-room cabin on the northern end of Chamberlain Lake in the North Woods. The two-week stay is scheduled for August.

The cabin is located 60 miles from the nearest town, which is Millinocket. Applications are available online. They’re due April 30.
