The Anvil Hotel in collaboration with The Teton Art Lab are proud to host Uncommon Art, our Artist in Residence program running through May 2022. This is Anvil’s 4h year hosting the program which began in 2017 and is held each year at its sister property Sound View Greenport.
Six exceptional artists from all over the country were selected from hundreds of applications to live and work on property and be inspired by Jackson Hole. As part of the residency, each artist is invited to share something with the community (that's you) whether it be a performance, an open working session, or even a display of their work.
Building a Creative Community
As artists, sculptors and filmmakers converge at The Anvil, a powerful conversation of the creative community ignites. Our artist participants will host open working sessions, display key works, and lead socially distanced talks, inviting the community into rare opportunities to witness the artist's journey, from inspiration to completion.
