Ends on March 1, 2020

The mission of Ucross Foundation is to foster the creative spirit of deeply committed artists and groups by providing uninterrupted time, studio space, living accommodations, and the experience of the majestic High Plains while serving as a good steward of its historic 20,000-acre ranch.

ABOUT THE RESIDENCY PROGRAM

The Ucross Foundation Residency Program offers the gift of time and space to competitively selected individuals working in all artistic disciplines.  The Foundation strives to provide a respectful, comfortable and productive environment, freeing artists from the pressures and distractions of daily life.  As painter Carol Schwennesen commented, "There has been no other art experience that has been as wide and deep and solid as the experience of being at Ucross."

The Ucross Foundation provides living accommodations, individual work space, and uninterrupted time to approximately 85 individuals each year.  Typical residencies are one month in length but can vary from two to six weeks.  At any one time, there are up to ten individuals in residence, a mix of visual artists, writers and composers.  In most cases, studios are separate from living quarters.  

Lunch and dinners are prepared Monday to Friday by a professional chef with ample provisions on hand for breakfasts and weekends.  Lunches are delivered to individual studios; group dinners take place at 6 p.m.  Towels and all linens are provided, as is weekly housekeeping for bedrooms.  There is cell phone service and wireless internet throughout residency facilities.  

Residents are responsible for providing their own working materials and for their travel to Sheridan, Wyoming.  There is no charge for a residency.
