Border Art Residency

January 7, 2013


The BAR differs from many artist residency programs since it is designed for a single artist (or couple) in a remote and unique locale near the US/Mexico border. It is best suited to a self-sufficient individual who seeks a period of quiet and solitude for serious artistic inquiry and production.linens.


The Border Art Residency, a non-profit organization affiliated with the El Paso Community Foundation, offers a selected artist a period of retreat for creative work. The BAR is located in a spacious living/studio space in La Union, New Mexico, located 15 miles from El Paso, Texas, in the scenic Mesilla Valley. Resident artists are provided with a fully furnished living/working space, all utilities (except phone), and a monthly stipend of $600.


The next open residency period is from August 1, 2017, to May 31, 2018. Applications will be accepted until January 15, 2017
