Ucross Announces Artists Selected for Residencies

Fifty-four visual artists, writers, playwrights, composers and others have been selected to participate in the Ucross artist-in-residence program this spring.

Selection was from nearly 400 applicants for the program, which provides uninterrupted time, studio space and living accommodations on Ucross's 20,000-acre ranch at the foothills of the Big Horn Mountain.

The spring roster includes artists from 17 different states throughout the U.S. as well as from Athens, Greece, and the United Kingdom.

Founded in 1981 by the late Raymond Plank, Ucross has provided more than 2,000 residencies to some of the world's most accomplished artists. The program has been home to 10 Pulitzer Prize winners, eight recipients of MacArthur “genius” grants, seven Tony Award winners, six National Book Award winners and two Academy Award winners.

Ten artists are in residence at one time, typically a mix of four visual artists, four writers and two composers. Facilities include four visual arts studios, four writers' studios and two composers' studios, each with an electronic keyboard and baby grand piano.

There is also an etching press for printmakers and a large loft space suitable for dance and theater collaborations.
