Ucross Foundation

Beginning with the Fourth Annual Lebenbom Memorial Award, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Ucross Foundation. The award winner will receive a one-month residency at the Ucross Foundation, an internationally known artist's retreat located on the High Plains in northern Wyoming.

Sharon Dynak, President of the Ucross Foundation, says, "We are honored to have this opportunity to collaborate with the DSO and to provide further support to the winner of the Elaine Lebenbom Award.  In recent years Ucross has increased its support to composers and we are excited about the possibilities of this award.  Ucross offers composers, artists and writers a rare gift in today's world -- uninterrupted time to focus on the creation of new work, in a nurturing community of other artists.  The vast open space and natural beauty of Wyoming provide an inspiring setting in which to create and dream."

Ucross Foundation


Located on a 20,000-acre working cattle ranch on the High Plains in northeastern Wyoming, the Ucross Foundation was founded in 1981 by Raymond Plank and has awarded Fellowships to over 1,400 writers, composers and artists in all disciplines from around the United States and the world. The Residency Program recognizes excellence in the visual arts, music and literature by supporting the work of individuals who have demonstrated exceptional achievement or potential for making a significant contribution to their field of inquiry and to society. Through the Foundation’s creative retreat and private studio space, public art gallery, cattle ranch, abundant wildlife, and commitment to its natural resources, Ucross is a true living laboratory in which the diverse interests of conservation, the arts and the natural environment work together on mutually compatible goals. Part of the mission of the Ucross Foundation is to cast a reflection into the future from the cultural mirror of our lives and times. For more information visit www.ucrossfoundation.org
