The mission of BCA is to promote Breckenridge as a vibrant, year-round creative destination by developing inspiring collaborative experiences that attract visitors and enrich the lives of the citizens. BCA’s artist-in-residence program offers regional, national, and international artists of all disciplines an opportunity to focus on process rather than product while engaging with the local community in a meaningful way.
Visiting artists live and work for 4–8 weeks in the Breckenridge Arts District, an intimate campus of historic structures nestled under majestic snow-capped peaks in cozy downtown Breckenridge. During their live/work residency, artists partner with a local organization to explore a place-based thematic narrative—whether that means interpreting the spectacular mountain setting, rich local history, or risk-taking spirit; or focusing on an environmental or social topic important to the community. BCA will reimburse artists up to $500 for travel, and artists are offered a weekly stipend of $200 to cover food, materials, and other expenses.
Artist expectations include: 1) mentoring a local artist-in-residence; 2) participating in monthly Second Saturdays; 3) facilitating a weekly class, lecture, or activity on campus; and 4) planning and hosting a final presentation or event produced in collaboration with a local partner.
There are 2 live/work studios with a multipurpose studio on the first floor and a fully furnished apartment on the second floor. Apartments include a private kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom. Partners and children are welcome.
