Ox-Bow School of Art and Artists’ Residency Executive Director
Founded in 1910, Ox-bow School of Art and Artist Residency is a world-renowned school and residency program, supporting artists from all backgrounds and experiences as they come together through instruction, example, and community to experiment and nurture their artistic practice. Catering to degree-seeking students, professional artists and interested amateurs, Ox-Bow brings together over four hundred artists, including over fifty faculty and forty-five residents each year to engage with one another in a distinctive learning community. Our longstanding affiliation with The School of the Art Institute of Chicago is a unique model that yields a rigor and conceptual discourse that is evident within the programs. Ox-Bow is a sylvan artists’ retreat located in Saugatuck, MI on a 115-acre campus nestled within a protected inland coastal dune on Lake Michigan. Ox-Bow’s Administrative offices are in Chicago, IL on the campus of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
