VICKSBURG, MICHIGAN - USA
About the Residency
Prairie Ronde Artist Residency offers artists from a range of disciplines a 5 – 7 week residency in the historic Village of Vicksburg, Michigan. We offer a unique environment for our artists to develop their craft: the 420,000 square foot former Lee Paper Company mill and its adjacent 80 acres of property.
PRAIRIE RONDE AND THE MILL
Prairie Ronde is hosted by The Mill at Vicksburg, a redevelopment project of the former Lee Paper Company mill, whose extensive and ongoing plans focus on sustainability.
Our goal is to bring artists into the space to engage with The Mill’s historic legacy and its monumental transformation.
