Mural Mini-Residency

Our partnership with En Root House has been phenomenal, and we're happy to manage the Mural Mini-Residency for them.

This program hosts an artist at En Root House for one to two weeks while furnishing a mural on one of the fence panels that surrounds the property. Lodging is provided for free courtesy of En Root; the artist will be provided with one of the shared bunks, but is responsible for all other travel, materials, and living expenses.
