Ucross Lane - Matt Nalls

Ucross Foundation was founded in 1981 by Raymond Plank and is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. It is the mission of Ucross Foundation to foster fresh and innovative thinking in the visual arts, literature, and music by providing residencies, work space and uninterrupted time to individual artists, writers, and composers.  The Foundation supports Residents whose work reflects a depth of individual creative exploration and the potential for significant future accomplishments.  Situated on a 20,000-acre working cattle ranch, the Ucross Foundation's unique geographic location introduces individuals to the land, people and ethos of the northern High Plains and Rocky Mountain region.  Through its Residency Program, Art Gallery, conferences, land stewardship, and special projects, Ucross actively seeks to support an appreciation for vibrant human creativity and aims to cast a reflection into the future from the cultural mirror of our lives and times.
