A Studio in the Woods

A program of Tulane University located in the eight forested acres on the Mississippi River in New Orleans, A Studio in the Woods is dedicated to preserving the endangered bottomland hardwood forest and providing within it a peaceful retreat where artists, scholars and students can reconnect with nature and work uninterrupted. The Studio has an established record of pairing land preservation with intimate artist residencies and connecting artists to the local community through creative discourse centered on environmental challenges. By providing opportunities throughout the year for the public to experience and interact with our artists, their work, and the woods, the Studio fosters creativity, community, understanding and reverence for the natural world.
