Artist-in-Residence

We reference "artist-in-residenceā€ in the broadest of terms, as many top Fortune 500 CEOs poessess more artistic vision than you could ever imagine. Individuals benefiting from our artist-in-residence program have not just been musicians, writers and artists, but have included lawyers, scientists, athletes and politicians... who have lost their focus along the way, and needed to rediscover their heart and muse.

Selected participants in the artist-in-residence program are invited to stay with us to pursue their discipline in a supportive, encouraging environment, free from outside pressures.

Open your mind and heart to new possiblities while you create.

Heroes

Music provides a haven for the heart and soul for soldiers, service people, first responders and all those who are giving of themselves to serve others. Different from our artist-in-residence program, heroes provides a supportive, encouraging environment, free from outside pressures — so that they may simply sleep, rest and heal. In addition to loaning Gibson guitars and other musical instruments for heroes to play when they visit, we offer respite for selected participants to help them recharge and renew their mind, body and spirit.

Being able to provide Heroes a safe sanctuary to replenish themselves, warms our hearts, and renews our faith, in man-kind.
