The Prairie Ronde Artist Residency in historic Vicksburg, Michigan (near Kalamazoo) provides access to the 420,000-square-foot former Lee Paper Company paper mill and its adjacent eighty acres of property. The aim of the residency is to offer artists space and time to work while also encouraging connection and dialogue with the community of Vicksburg.
The residency program supports visual artists, writers, video/filmmakers, and musicians with a $2,000 stipend for a residency of between four and seven weeks, a $500 travel grant, and private use of a car. Prairie Ronde provides private housing, studio space, and a stipend for one to two residents at a time.
Artists are encouraged to utilize Prairie Ronde’s close ties to members of the village community and the area’s creative community and are asked to propose a community “give back” such as a workshop, final show, or open studio days, as well as donate a piece of work to Prairie Ronde’s collection.
Fall residencies will be held September 15 through December 15, 2021.
See the Prairie Ronde website for complete residency guidelines and application instructions.
