The Helene Wurlitzer Foundation of New Mexico, established in 1954, is one of the oldest artist residence programs in the country. The Foundation’s mission is to “Support the artist and the creative process” and serves as a haven for visual artists, literary artists and music composers. We are located on fifteen acres in the heart of Taos, New Mexico, a four-hundred-year-old multicultural community renowned for its popularity with artists.
Mission Street Arts exists to further the artistic vision of resident artists and the community by providing studio space in a scenic and supportive environment. MSA welcomes artists working in diverse fields including stone-carving, sculpture, painting, drawing, performance, printmaking, textile arts, and writing, and encourages community involvement through workshops, studio visits, and exhibits.
Residencies are available for 1 to 8 weeks, tailored to the artist. The residence includes a private bedroom, shared bathrooms, kitchen, library and living room in addition to studio space and access to various tools and equipment.
