Apply for a 2023 Residency

The Green Box Artist in Residence program offers artists of national and international stature, from diverse disciplines, and at any stage in their career the opportunity to create new works while living in and engaging with the community of Green Mountain Falls and greater Pikes Peak region. Applications for 2023 residencies are now being accepted through October 14th!

The Nomadic Photo Ark

Piloted by our current resident artists Monica Frisell and Adam Scher, the Nomadic Photo Ark is a converted cargo trailer equipped with a photo dark room and office space. Since July of 2021, Monica and Adam have been traveling throughout the United States collecting 8×10 film portraits and audio stories for their ongoing project called Portrait of US.

Anyone interested in being part of Portrait of US can sign up for an interview and portrait session. These 45 to 90-minute appointments are taking place September 12 through October 8 and reservations can be made using the link below.

Legend of light and space

Experience James Turrell’s Skyspace

Cosseted on a butte overlooking Gazebo Lake and bathed by the rustling of pine trees, the James Turrell Skyspace in Green Mountain Falls is a harmonious addition to our charming town at the foothills of Pikes Peak —an extension of the landscape, preserved in its natural setting. The experience begins with an inspirational journey via two new trailheads that deliver hikers directly to the sheltered Skyspace in the hills above, overlooking the center of town and Gazebo Lake.

Tickets are currently available for experiences through the end of November 2022.
