ABOUT DAC IN-RESIDENCE

This program is made possible by generous individual donors and New Face Productions, an volunteer committee devoted to raising funds for contemporary adult programs at DAC.
Residency award includes studio and living space at Willowtail for seven nights. This opportunity does not cover food, material costs or any stipend.
The Durango Arts Center seeks to engage regional artists and deepen artistic diversity within our surrounding communities. In order to promote the field of artist communities, DAC provides opportunities for the public to engage with resident artists through a special offering of the artist’s design such as a lecture, slideshow, pop-up exhibit, reading or performance.
If not currently a member of DAC, each artist awarded a residency will be also be given a complimentary 1-year DAC membership, which includes several benefits (more information here)
In addition to a private cabin, this residency at Willowtail offers a 600 sq. ft working studio space full of natural light and visibility of the natural surroundings. The studio is nestled in the gardens adjacent to the lake house overlooking the lake, gardens and small pool with fountain.
There is no fee to apply and this residency is open to DAC members and non-members.
