Wyoming Artist Residency

Maps & Directions

Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts offers a Wyoming artist residency program on a 30,000-acre guest and working cattle ranch at the base of the Medicine Bow National Forest in Saratoga, Wyoming. Art retreats take place right next to Brush Creek, in between the Sierra Madre and Snowy Mountain ranges surrounded by native sagebrush and pastoral meadows with lush forests of aspen, cottonwood, and conifer. When awarded with an artist residency, the institution will provide full transportation from Laramie Airport to the ranch but artists must cover their own transportation to Laramie.
