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.
Lori Larusso is an American visual artist working with themes of domesticity and foodways. Her work encompasses paintings and installations that explore class, gender and anthropocentrism, and how these practices reflect and shape culture.
Aaron Peters received a bachelor’s in visual arts from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2016 and a Master of Fine Arts at Ohio State University in 2022.
My work draws heavily from puppetry, slapstick entertainment, collaborative relationships, gender tropes, horticulture and the fiber arts.
