Helene Wurlitzer Foundation of New Mexico
The Helene Wurlitzer Foundation of New Mexico, established in 1954, is one of the oldest artist residence programs in the country. The foundation keeps a low profile and serves as a haven for painters, poets, sculptors, writers, playwrights, composers, photographers and filmmakers. We are located on eighteen acres in the heart of Taos, New Mexico, a four-hundred-year-old multicultural community renowned for its popularity with artists.
The Wurlitzer Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt, educational and charitable organization dedicated to supporting artists and the creative process.
The campus of the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation consists of eleven artist residency casitas on eighteen acres in the heart of Taos, NM.
Three casitas are designated for visual artists, three for composers, and five for literary artists. They are single-occupancy, furnished homes with all your basic amenities.
The Foundation offers three sessions a year:
Session 1 (mid January – early April)
Session 2 (mid May – mid August)
Session 3 (early September – Late November)
The annual deadline for applications is January 18th for residencies the following calendar year. Grantees will be notified of their fellowship awards by June 1st.
