WATERVILLE VALLEY — Margret and H.A. Rey, authors of the Curious George children's book series and former summer residents of Waterville Valley, New Hampshire, were artists and adventurers, historians and naturalists, gardeners and environmental stewards. Today the legacy of their pursuits lives on in the Margret and H.A. Rey Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to honoring the Reys' spirit of curiosity and discovery by increasing understanding and participation in art, science, and nature through programs for youth, adults and families.
The Curious George Cottage Artist in Residence is open to professional and emerging artists in all media – visual and performing arts, craftspeople, authors, poets, composers, eco artists and media artists. The Residency provides an opportunity to pursue and share art and the artistic process in the inspirational setting of New Hampshire's White Mountains.
