|About Us ResidencIes Artposia Contact Donate|
Colorado Art Ranch is a nomadic arts organization, founded on the belief that the arts are catalysts for change. In support of that belief we offer residencies for literary and visual artists, and Artposia for the public.
We travel to Colorado towns each year to sponsor one-month residencies for artists from around the world. Colorado Art Ranch also hosts a public forum, called an Artposium, to promote conversations on how the arts intersect with land and social issues.
A Unique Arts Organization
Nomadic. Colorado Art Ranch owns neither land nor buildings. We bring the residencies and Artposia to Colorado towns where housing, studio space, and conference facilities are rented or donated.
Interdisciplinary. Every residency mixes literary and visual artists to promote the exchange of ideas. Each Artposium explores how the arts intersect with life and the land from myriad viewpoints.
Boundary-crossing. Because Colorado Art Ranch is nomadic, it connects artists, writers, and supporters from many communities across the state. Because it is interdisciplinary, the Artposium fosters collaboration among artists, writers, scientists, and policy makers.
Community-building. Colorado Art Ranch serves communities across the state, requires artists-in-residence to donate time to the towns that host them, recruits local ambassadors to serve as “Art Buddies” for the visiting artists and draws on local experts for some of the presentations at the Artposia.
Colorado Art Ranch does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, religion, age, national origin, ancestry, creed, pregnancy, marital or parental status, sexual orientation, gender expression, or physical, mental, emotional or learning disability.donate
