Since moving to our campus in 2009, artists from around the world have discovered that The Bascom grounds are a ceaselessly inspiring environment for studio and instructional practice. Artists have access to 6-acres of stone amphitheaters, a creekside pavilion, the Winkler Sculpture and Nature Trail system, a corncrib, multiple exhibition spaces, and studios with a rustic barnwood aesthetic.
A Different Type of ResidencyThe Bascom’s Resident Artists are critical members of our team. We entrust them with real responsibilities that uphold the mission of our organization. Residents must be disciplined, hard workers who are able to tackle a broad range of projects that will prepare them for a career in the arts.

Artist Statement and Portfolio Development
Department heads regularly meet with Resident Artists to evaluate the residents’ performance, provide feedback, set project goals, find local and regional opportunities for the residents' benefit, and give positive reinforcement.
"You were an invaluable resource for me and I really appreciate all the time you took to talk me through my ideas and processes and you really did help me to feel more confident in what I was doing and the decisions I was making. I also appreciate your knowledge of art and how the work I was doing was relative in certain aspects to current and past works. I just wanted to tell you again, thank you. I really appreciate all the time you took to help me through this process. It was a great experience."
