Founded 1997
El Paso, United States


The Border Art Residency provides space and time for artists to pursue their practice while exploring the intersection and significance of the border with an emphasis on engaging the community. The Border Art Residency was established in 1997 as a place to support contemporary visual artists. The brain child of Ray Parish and Becky Hendrick, this program provides artists with the opportunity to concentrate on their work in a quiet setting without distractions or the worry of immediate sales or an outside job to pay for housing expenses. A monthly stipend is given to each artist during the ten-month residency.
