We offer a stipend of $2,000 for 4 – 7 weeks, a $500 travel grant, private housing and studio space. We ask that our artists propose a way to give back to the community (like a workshop, final show or open studio days) and that they donate a piece of work to our collection.
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
From the French, meaning ‘round meadow’, the Residency is named to honor the islands of grasses and wildflowers that once dotted the landscape of southwest Michigan. First settled in 1831, Vicksburg is a quaint, rural village surrounded by lush agricultural land dotted with lakes, stands of hardwood forests, and gently flowing streams.
WHAT IS THE GOAL?
To bring artists to our community of Vicksburg, building upon its legacy of being a creative and cultural hub.
WHO CAN APPLY & HOW LONG IS THEIR STAY?

HOW OFTEN? IS THERE A COST?
