Past Residents

Since 2001, the residency has hosted more than 800 creative individuals, a varied combination of visual artists, writers, composers, and interdisciplinary artists from across the country and around the world. Each has found privacy in which to create along with ample opportunities to interact with fellow artists in a friendly community located in the rolling bluff country of southeastern Nebraska.

A number of these artists have chosen to donate to the permanent collection housed in the common areas of the Center. Works by previous visual art residents are on display throughout the halls while the books, manuscripts and musical recordings of former writers and composers are available for viewing and listening in the main gallery space. We also have a podcast series, In-Residence, featuring readings, interviews, and music all by our residents! You can subscribe to our podcast for free on iTunes
