Art Institute of the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum residency program is for visual artists with training in the visual arts at the post-secondary level, or equivalent experience and exhibition/publication record, whose practice compliments our mission of

“Conservation Through Art Education”

— art related to the appreciation of our natural environment. 

During the month-long residency, you'll stay in a quaint, comfortable casita on the Museum grounds surrounded by the magic — and artistic inspiration - of the Arizona-Sonora desert.
