J.B. Blunk Residency

The J.B. Blunk Residency offers a home, studio and outdoor clearings for work.The home and studio, built by J.B. Blunk in 1959, with salvaged materials, suggest a certain lifestyle that is independent, sustainable and closely connected to the landscape.

Because of J.B.’s profound connection to the surrounding environment the hope is that the residency program will foster work inspired by the site.

“I began making wood sculpture in 1962. I knew how to use a chain saw and it was one of those things. One day you just start.”
