Art Residency


Rancho Linda Vista has a number of opportunities for artists to stay—from a few days to a month. During their stays, artists can carve out the time and space to focus on new work, try out new forms and ideas, take advantage of the desert wilderness and the company of a rare collection of artists and creative thinkers.

Summer Artist Residency Award

The Summer Artist Residency Award application process is now open.
An Artist Residency is generally awarded once a year to a gifted visual artist for a one-month summer stay. This includes a private 1-BR house, barn studio, and $1,000 stipend. The application process opens in the spring.

Artist Guest House Rental

During the regular course of the year, the Ranch Guest House and associated barn studio are available to serious visual and other artists for a month-long stay, for a $700 fee. This is an ideal opportunity for artists who seek a concentrated period of time to focus on their work. Learn more...

1950s Modern Trailer

For those looking for a short stay and/or who do not require a studio, an updated and charming 1960s trailer is available for rent through RLV OracleArt (a non-profit foundation associated with the Ranch). Email info@RLVOracleArt [dot] com to learn more.

Additional opportunities

We are also working on providing new opportunities for artists in a range of disciplines, including literature and music, who seek short-term stays and/or do not require a working studio space. Check back in late summer for updates.
