|The 360 XOCHI QUETZAL Artist and Writer’s Residency Program is located on Lake Chapala, the largest lake in Mexico, where the perfect year-round climate and stunning lake and mountain views have long established the region as an international artist mecca. Residents will be inspired by the natural beauty, history and culture of this special part of central Mexico. Chapala is located 25 minutes from Guadalajara International Airport and 45 minutes from Guadalajara, one of the largest cities in Mexico boasting abundant cultural resources: museums, galleries, theatre and artist supplies. Xochi Quetzal is the Aztec goddess of creativity and fertility and protector of artisans. She is sure to inspire you during your stay!
Reserve a private studio apartment where you can focus on your creative work and enjoy our gorgeous scenery and perfect year-round climate.
ROLLING DEADLINE: We accept letters of inquiry throughout the year for our personal residency program and reserve spaces on a first-come first-serve basis. You may also write to us in either English or Spanish at [email protected]
My residency at 360 Xochi Quetzal in summer 2015 was both restorative and productive. I was inspired by the beautiful studio and the surrounding Chapala / Jalisco region. The setting worked well for me in terms of inspiring and completing new work, and learning the history and customs of the area. The flexible residency requirements allowed an easy engagement with other residents, and encouraged me to participate in Chapala and Guadalajara communities. There are many contemporary art venues in Guadalajara, which are an easy bus ride from Chapala. Michael Pribich, Sculptor-New York City
