VCCA is supported through the partnership of the artists it serves and the donors who are committed to advancing creative work. We depend on all accepted applicants to help offset the cost of their residencies to the best of their ability.

Financial Information

Mt. San Angelo

VCCA currently has 24 fully endowed residencies at Mt. San Angelo. We are working to build our endowment, and our goal is to endow all of our residences. Meanwhile, artist per diem payments are vital to our ongoing operations.

The cost of a VCCA residency is $150 per artist/per day which includes an individual studio, private bedroom, semi-private bath, and three meals each day. We ask you to contribute a minimum payment of $75 per day (half the cost of the residency) and welcome a per diem payment up to the full daily cost of $150 per day if you are able. Paying at least the minimum helps VCCA make improvements to the overall residency experience.

Artists are accepted to VCCA based on the quality of their work and not on their ability to pay. We distribute a generous amount of financial aid every year. If you are accepted and cannot pay at least $75 per day, VCCA will work with you in good faith to be sure you can come.
