Joe Barrington, 2014 Artist in Residence

Applications are now open for the 2015 Meg Hunt Residency Program. To get the juices flowing about what you can do with two weeks at the Wrangell Mountains Center I am going to share blog posts about our 2014 Meg Hunt Residents over the next month, and will begin with our first resident sculptor, Joe Barrington.

Life Again at the Hardware Store

Leanne Phelps compiled this photo essay for our blog back in late July, 2014. I hope you'll enjoy this snapshot of life in the summer at the Old Hardware Store. It was a pleasure to host Leanne at the WMC while she conducted her research for her masters dissertation. We were especially lucky to have her exceptional eye behind a camera.


Based in McCarthy, Alaska, at the heart of the nation's largest National Park and just minutes from the toe of the Kennicott Glacier, the private nonprofit Wrangell Mountains Center fosters appreciation, understanding, and stewardship of wildlands and mountain culture in Alaska through scientific and artistic inquiry in the Wrangell Mountains. Meeting the needs of students, writers, artists, scientists, travelers and local citizens, we offer opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to explore, express, and be transformed through direct experience with this extraordinary place.

The Wrangell Mountains Center provides residential and walk-in experiential education programs that foster discovery through direct contact with diverse environments. We embrace an interdisciplinary approach composed of analytical, artistic, and scientific modes of perception. We value wilderness both for its own sake and for the powerful direct experience it offers us.
