Morris Graves Foundation

About Morris Graves Foundation

The Morris Graves Foundation mission is to provide an inspiring location for artists and arts scholars, preserve the property in its undisturbed natural state, maintain a collection of art for study, support selected artists who work in harmony with the Foundation’s purposes and arrange for related educational opportunities.

By invitation, retreat to “The Lake”. Since 1964 “The Lake” has been the home, studio and gardens of Morris Graves. Surrounded by ancient beauty, it is an exquisite secluded floating world of light, reflection, trees, sky and verdant green. It is a place of solitude and peace, a place to rekindle the heart, the spirit, and the creativity of an artist.

Write to the Foundation for the description of the facilities, guidelines and an application for the residency. Applications for the residency are accepted year-round.
