Wilderness Workshop


Residency Program
The Artist in Wilderness program invites artists for one-week summer residencies near Aspen, Colorado. Since 2008, selected residents have been given the opportunity to create art in natural settings that WW is working to protect.

Chosen by a jury of regional artists and collectors, participants have worked in a variety of mediums, including land art. For 2016, the program has accepted professional artists working in wood, stone, clay, and glass.

Program Details
Selected artists will be provided with housing, a guide, a $1,500 stipend and reimbursement for travel. Artists are responsible for providing their own food, equipment and materials. Good health and endurance are essential.
Artists are expected to use their residency to derive inspiration from and make art in the White River National Forest or nearby federal public lands. They are required to donate one original work made during their residency or inspired by it to Wilderness Workshop, and to license certain reproduction rights to other works from the residency to help WW raise funds for future residencies.


Near Aspen, Colorado: United States

Our “turf” is the 2.3-million-acre White River National Forest, along with over 500,000 acres of nearby federal lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management.

The most visited forest in the nation, the White River stretches from the Flat Tops in the north to the Elk Range (stretching from Aspen to Carbondale) in the south, and from Battlement Mesa in the west to the Eisenhower Tunnel in the east. It comprises the headwaters of the Colorado River, and straddles the “spine of the continent,” a major north-south wildlife movement corridor. Most of the BLM lands in this region are administered by the Glenwood Springs Field Office and include noteworthy wildlands outside of Rifle, Carbondale and Eagle.
