UCROSS, WYO.: The Ucross artist residency program in Northeast Wyoming has partnered with the Yale School of Drama and the Yale School of Music for two new endowed fellowships. The fellowships will support the creative work of graduate students or faculty.
“Ucross’s collaboration with Yale runs deep, from our founder, Raymond Plank, to the extraordinarily talented Yale artists and alumni we’ve welcomed to our campus,” Sharon Dynak, Ucross’s president and executive director, said in a statement. “These endowed funds, and the residences they support, will provide new ways for Ucross to foster creativity and nurture the work of some of the nation’s most promising artists.”
Residencies will range from two to four weeks, and recipients will also receive a travel stipend. Works that have been created, in part, at Ucross residencies include Michael R. Jackson’s A Strange Loop, winner of the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Since its establishment in 1981, Ucross has provided more than 2,500 residences to writers, visual artists, and composers on its 20,000-acre ranch.
