Montello Foundation is a foundation dedicated to support artists who foster our understanding of nature, its fragility and our need to protect it. The Montello Foundation provides a solitary retreat where artists can experience the vastness of a desert landscape from a safe building, a “base camp,” a unique space for inspiration and creation, a place that provides a shield from distractions in the solitude of the desert. A building designed with a large shading roof under which there are two distinct spaces: one space for the bodily needs: eating; sleeping; washing, and a stove for the cold desert nights, and a second space for work: for writing; painting; drawing; studying, a space for the first materializations of new ideas. There is no cost for this program. Artists must cover travel and living expenses.
The retreat is located in a remote valley near Montello, Nevada. The administrative office is in New York City.
