Summit AIR

Summit AIR is a hybrid artist residency program focused on creative entrepreneurialism, social practice and group efficacy that invites ten individuals annually to explore ambitious artistic endeavors while living in beautiful Eden, UT. Visiting artists will immerse themselves in the surrounding nature of the expansive Wasatch Mountains while also connecting with visiting members of the Summit community comprised of the worlds top business leaders, innovators, athletes and philanthropists.

The Summit AIR program is a unique opportunity for working artists to develop their careers in the arts and meet new friends and collaborators while directly influencing the cultural fabric of the Summit Powder Mountain village. Each residency includes on-campus lodging with a kitchen and Wi-Fi, travel stipend, materials stipend, ticket to a Summit Mountain Series weekend and Ski or Mountain biking packages depending on season. Visiting artists are supported to engage with the local community in Ogden Valley by leading free workshops or lectures on Powder Mountain
