"The Brush Creek Ranch is a surreal place that belongs in an artist's dream. You will see nature differently, hear sound differently, and feel time differently. It is a dream that will have a profound impact on your artistic journey." Weijun Chen (Alumni - Jan 2018)
Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts offers time and space for artistic exploration through immersion in the extraordinary beauty of the West. Located on 30,000 acres of scenic splendor at the base of the Medicine Bow National Forest outside of Saratoga, Wyoming, the camp is situated right next to Brush Creek, in between the Sierra Madre and Snowy Mountain ranges.
Writers, visual artists, performance artists, musicians and composers are encouraged to apply for our three week artist residency programs, complete with lodging, meals, working facilities and incredible natural beauty. Residents are at liberty to structure their own time and activity while on a creative retreat. Whether solitude or social engagement is inspiring, the opportunities for creative enrichment are endless at Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts.
