"Being a resident at Brush Creek was a gift — the place, the people and the opportunity to work surpassed all expectations. The whole experience was about being in the present while creating something for the future." BCFA Alumni
Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts is a non-profit organization offering time and space for artistic exploration to visual artists, writers, musicians and composers from all backgrounds, level of expertise, media and genres. Two separate three week residency sessions are offered per year depending on availability and applicant’s ranking in jury process.
Creativity flows next to the banks of Brush Creek where up to eight residents immerse themselves in uninterrupted work time to polish existing projects, explore new endeavors and further develop their craft. A jury of professionals from the arts and humanities rank residents based on submitted work samples in a competitive selection process for our artist residency programs. Awards are based on juror ranking, submitted proposal, and overall application.
During their time at Artist Camp, artists will be provided a single room with private bath, individual studio space and meals. Breakfast fare is provided for self-service,while lunch and dinner are shared family-style in the common area each night.
Residents are responsible for all necessary supplies for their work and transportation costs to Laramie, Wyoming. Transportation is provided both to and from the ranch and Laramie Regional Airport on arrival and departure days only.
