Arkansas Grown Arkansas Farm to School

The goal of the Artists in Residency (AIR) Program at Lucky Star Farm is to consciously cultivate food, the arts, and community in ways that protect and sustain our environment. At Lucky Star we are immersed in the natural world and allow artists and scholars to be nourished by the farm and the beauty of the surrounding Ozark Mountains.

The Lucky Star Farm AIR Program offers residencies in the Spring and Fall with room, board and a stipend. We welcome emerging and established artists in a wide range of disciplines—visual arts, music, performance art, theater, dance, writing, culinary arts, photography, architecture, interior design, garden design, textile arts, sculpture, graphic design, biology, ecology, food preservation, and farming. At the present we can accommodate one to two artists at a time. Applications will be reviewed twice a year by a panel of creative professionals.

Unique to Lucky Star is the inclusion of a textile dyeing program. Textile Artists who work in natural plant dyeing have access to plant materials specifically grown for fabric dyeing in our dye garden. At Lucky Star we grow indigo, woad, madder and many other dye plants. Our new outdoor dye structure can facilitate experimenting with historical dyeing methods. Seasonal dyeing materials can also be sustainably wild harvested or gleaned from the farm’s flower and herb garden.

Now more than ever we need artists, creative thinkers, and storytellers to help us reconnect to the ecological and social communities where we live. Art and culture can help facilitate dialogue that connects local experiences with larger contexts by helping people find common ground across political, geographical, and ideological boundaries.
