Residency

For over 20 years, the Lannan Residency Fellowship provided uninterrupted writing time for poets, writers, essayists, translators, scholars, curators, as well as Native American, environmental, and social justice activists.

Since the spring of 1998, more than 360 residency fellows were housed in Lannan properties in Marfa, Texas, a small, beautiful, high desert ranching town in West Texas near the Chinati Mountains to the southwest and the Davis Mountains to the northeast. Marfa is also home to the internationally known Chinati Foundation, a contemporary art organization founded by the late sculptor, Donald Judd.

As of April 2022, the Lannan Residency Program in Marfa is now closed.
