ABOUT THE PROJECT

APPLICATION GUIDELINES

THE ARTISTS

The Ford Family Foundation's Visual Arts Program honors the late Hallie Ford's interests in the visual arts. The goal of the program is to help enhance the quality of artistic endeavor and body of work by Oregon's most promising visual artists.

In 2018, the Foundation will once again support two Oregon visual artists with the opportunity to participate in a residency at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation's Rauschenberg Residency in Captiva, Florida. Selected artists will receive:

  • a month-long residency in 2018
  • a general stipend of $3,000
  • up to $1,000 in travel and materials support

Please note: This residency opportunity is by invitation only. Invitations will be sent in late-April 2017 to eligible Oregon visual artists to apply for 2018 residencies.

Robert Rauschenberg Foundation | Rauschenberg Residency


The Rauschenberg Residency is a creative center that welcomes artists of all disciplines from around the world to live, work, and create. Located on Robert Rauschenberg’s former property on Captiva Island, Florida, the Residency campus is infused with beauty and tranquility and marked by its unique history. Inspired by Rauschenberg's early years at Black Mountain College, the residency promotes collaboration, advances new work, extends practices into new mediums, and serves as a research and development lab for performance-based projects. It fosters the ideal that artistic practice advances mutual understanding and engenders a focus on the conservation of a sensitive and pristine environment and integration with the local surroundings.

Location: Captiva, Florida (U.S.)
Length of residency: 4 weeks (the property is closed in August)
# of artists-in-residence at a time: 9
Meals: weekday lunches and dinners provided; kitchens are stocked for other meals, which residents prepare for themselves
