WILTON/RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- The artist-in-residence programs at National Parks offer a unique opportunity to inspire artists and viewers alike, says Linda Cook, superintendent at Weir Farm National Historic Site in Ridgefield and Wilton. 

Cook recently sat down for an interview with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the "Federal Drive" program on Federal News Radio to discuss the artist-in-residence programs offered across the country. She talks about what makes the program unique at Weir Farm, the only National Park site dedicated to painting. She even talks about a few of her favorite artists who have worked at Weir Farm.
