In response to the COVID-19 health crisis, Rancho Linda Vista has suspended its 2020 Summer Artist Residency Award. Thank you to everyone who has shown interest. We hope you will be encouraged to apply when the Award is next offered. More news will be made available when known.

ABOUT: Each spring, Rancho Linda Vista (RLV) invites committed 2D and/or 3D visual artists to apply for its annual artist residency. This residency offers a unique opportunity for an artist seeking to create a body of work, in a serene and beautiful setting, among a community of creative colleagues. The residency is available for July or August. (Applicants are asked to indicate their preferred month of residence in their applications.)

The residency includes a furnished one-bedroom house, separate studio space, and a $1,000 stipend. The selected resident is encouraged to display and share his/her work in an open studio at the conclusion of the stay. Residents must have their own means of transportation in order to obtain necessitities and take advantage of the cultural offerings in Tucson and the surrounding region.

How to Apply

The current application process is now closed. Please check back next spring for submission instructions and deadline.
