About Brush Creek Foundation For The Arts
Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts offers residencies for artists on a historic working ranch in Wyoming. From countless miles of trails to hike, bike, snowshoe, or cross-country ski, this unique destination offers endless ways to enjoy the spectacular country. A diversity of wildlife call the ranch home including antelope, deer, elk, moose, fox, badger, and marmots.
Over the years, Brush Creek Ranch has served as a home to numerous families, cattle, and horse herds. It offers a one-of-a-kind gathering place for guests from around the world. The story of Brush Creek Ranch dates back to 1884 when the Sterrett brothers settled the land and built the original homestead with logs cut, skid, and hauled from the adjoining National Forest. In 2008, the ranch was purchased by Bruce White, Chairman and CEO of White Lodging, one of the most respected names in the hotel industry.
Brush Creek Ranch is the culmination of the White family’s extensive hospitality experience, continuous dedication to philanthropy, and unabashed passion for the sustainability of authentic Western heritage. Their vision unfolds as a refined getaway that strikes a perfect balance between active outdoor recreation, shared experiences, economic sustainability, and preservation of the western way of life. Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts came into being in 2011 to create incomparable residencies for artists in a variety of genres.
