Summer & Fall Artist-in-Residence Program

The Peter Bullough Foundation provides fall and spring residencies for emerging artists and scholars with diverse backgrounds and interests. We hope to create a community that elevates voices that are underserved, including those of the LGBTQIA2S+ community. The ideal applicant will be self-directed, able to work independently, and interested in engaging with the local community. Each awarded residency period is roughly four weeks long and is shared with one or two other artists in residence. Artistic collaborators in groups of two to three may apply in one application. While in residence, artists are required to host a community workshop, lecture, or event virtually or in-person.

The PBF accepts applications from artists working in the following disciplines: architecture, literature, film/video arts, interdisciplinary arts, music, music composition, playwriting, screenwriting, poetry, theatre, and the visual arts.

Population(s) Served

From June through early August, the Peter Bullough Foundation provides free studio space and garden access for local Shenandoah Valley artists and scholars with diverse backgrounds and interests. As with our spring and fall residencies, we hope to create a community that elevates voices that are underserved, including those of the LGBTQIA2S+ community. The ideal applicant lives within 50 miles of the PBF, would enjoy exploring the gardens and collection, and would benefit from having a place for uninterrupted work and focus.

The PBF accepts applications from artists working in the following disciplines: architecture, literature, film/video arts, interdisciplinary arts, music, music composition, playwriting, screenwriting, poetry, theatre, and the visual arts.

Population(s) Served

While in residence, artists host a lecture, workshop, or other type of event in conjunction with local Shenandoah Valley community partners or virtually to the Peter Bullough Foundation audience. These events may have a small fee or may be free to attend. Topics span the breadth of our resident artists' subject matter and expertise.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Peter Bullough Foundation's ultimate goal is to save civilization through the power of the arts.

We aim to accomplish our goal of saving civilization by supporting as many emerging artists as possible each year through our interdisciplinary artist-in-residency programs, which provide space, time, and support to both local and visiting artists as they work in their respective mediums. We also support this goal as we work with our visiting artists to host workshops, lectures and events that are free or low cost for the local community. Finally, we share the rare book and art collections of the late Dr. Peter Bullough with residents and visitors.

Each year, we host between 20 and 24 visiting artists in our studios each year, giving them a month to fully dedicate themselves to their work. We work with each artist to host workshops for our surrounding community, partnering with local nonprofits and community groups to reach a wide audience. Each summer, we host 2-3 local artists for residencies that culminate in a large open studio event in our garden space. Our capabilities are defined by the support we receive from our members, community, board, and staff as well as the underlying support of our founder, Dr. Peter Bullough.

In 2023 alone, we hosted approximately 400 people for 24 events, an increase from approximately 250 for 16 events in 2022. In 2022, we hosted 20 artists in residence; in 2023, we hosted our 25 artists in residence. Each year, we strive to push our limits and capabilities to provide time and space to as many artists as possible and to provide art education to as much of the community as we can.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
