From visual artists, to writers, to scientific researchers, and more, we encourage the gamut from seasoned professionals to enthusiastic hobbyists, to apply for our various programs.

We offer both private and shared living spaces. 

Studio/ workspace
Depending on materials and process needed, many residents work in their cabins, while others who feel a need to stretch out utilize our 12'x20' car-port.  We also have a woodshop space, a large platform for working outdoors, and, of course, hundreds of miles of National Park and Wilderness Preserve surrounding the property!
