Ucross Foundation Accepting Applications for Spring 2017 Artist Residencies
Ucross Foundation

Founded in 1981, the Ucross Foundation provides uninterrupted time, work space, and living accommodations to competitively selected visual artists, writers, and composers. Nearly thirteen hundred individuals, from every state in the U.S. as well as many countries have spent time at Ucross since it first opened its doors in Sheridan, Wyoming.

Currently, the foundation is accepting applications for its 2017 Spring Residency program, which runs from March to June.

Residencies vary in length from two weeks to six weeks. At any one time, there are up to nine 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. In addition, there is cell phone service on the property and several wireless hot spots available for residents’ use. Residents are responsible for providing their own working materials and for their travel to Sheridan.

Although there is a $40 non-refundable application fee, there is no charge for a residency.

Artists, writers, and composers from anywhere in the United States and the world, in any stage of their professional career, are invited to apply for a residency.

For complete residency program information, information about previous artist residents, and application guidelines, see the Ucross Foundation website.
