Thanks to hundreds of wonderful local supporters and volunteers, Sedona Arts Center and Verde Valley School have established the Sedona Summer Colony. We're very proud of this new American residency program for artists and cultural managers, and grateful to everyone who participated in the inaugural season. Together we've turned a bold idea, and creative summer experiment, into an amazing success.
Over 130 creative people were part of our community between mid-June and mid-August, 2016, and they came from all over the world. While in Sedona, these artists and cultural managers found new inspiration and diverse influences—and they became forever connected to our incredible sense of place. The program provides each artist with room, meals, and work space in the extraordinary environment of Verde Valley School.
As the Arts Center and School prepare for the 2017 Sedona Summer Colony — July 16 to August 5 — we are looking for generous founding sponsors. If you would like to make a charitable contribution and help us fully establish Sedona Summer Colony as an ongoing program, please use the below pledge form and we will follow up. Thank you for helping us do exciting things, and for building extraordinary creative community with us!
