We have an open Application Process once a year from Sept 15th - December 15th.

Our Application period for 2017 submissions is now Closed. Deadline was December 15th, 2016

Email responses will be sent to all applicants by February 28, 2017.

Artist submissions and applications are reviewed and selected by our Advisory Committee.

Special Project proposals are accepted via email throughout the year.





Visual Art Donation: Each artist is required to donate an artwork to the LA SIERRA Collection or create site specific work on the property. The artwork should reflect their time and inspiration at the residency.




Artists are strongly encouraged to propose social community projects within their application to benefit the small jungle villages of Buritaca, Puerto Nuevo & Guachaca. It is important to our program that visiting artists give back to our local community during their residency. Topics and themes may include: waste management, recycling, arts education workshops with local schools, public murals, or art talks and lectures.
