Prairie Ronde Artist Residency

Prairie Ronde Artist Residency

The Prairie Ronde Artist Residency is located in historic Vicksburg, Michigan, near Kalamazoo. The residency provides access to the 420,000 square foot former Lee Paper Company paper mill and its adjacent 80 acres of property to use as inspiration. Artists are also encouraged to utilize our close ties to members of the village community and the area’s creative community.


We’ll provide housing and studio space for one resident at a time, three times a year. We’re offering a stipend of $2,000 for 4 – 7 weeks, a $500 travel grant, and private use of a car. We ask that the artist propose some sort of community “give back” like a workshop, final show or open studio days and that they donate a piece of work to our collection.
