Ucross Foundation Accepting Applications for Fall 2016 Artist Residencies
Ucross Foundation


Founded in 1981, the Ucross Foundation provides uninterrupted time, work space, and living accommodations at its campus in Sheridan, Wyoming, to approximately eighty-five visual artists, writers, and composers per year. Previous residents have come from every state in the U.S. as well as from many countries, including Germany, France, Scotland, England, Poland, Egypt, the Netherlands, Canada, and Thailand.

Currently, the foundation is accepting applications for its 2016 Fall Residency program, which runs from late-February to mid-June.

Residencies vary in length from two to six weeks. At any one time, there are up to nine individuals in residence comprising 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 Internet connection sites for residents’ use. Residents are responsible for providing their own working materials and for their travel to Sheridan, Wyoming. There is no charge for a residency.

Artists, writers, and composers from around the United States and the world, in all stages of their professional careers, are invited to apply to work on individual or collaborative projects.

For complete residency information, lists of previous artist residents, and guidelines for the online-only application process, visit the Ucross Foundation website.
