Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts History
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. They 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. The artist camp features eight working studios in historic, restored ranch buildings. There are eight individual residences with private bath, closet, and separate work space. Kitchen, library, family room, and laundry facility are shared. All meals are provided, which includes a self-prepared breakfast, bagged lunches, and family-style dinners.
