ArtVendome: Artist in Residence


From the Hotel’s inception in 1917, artists have been making their way to the Vendome for rest, refuge, and inspiration. Tom Mix, legendary silent movie star of nearly 300 movies, lived at the hotel in the 1920s while he filmed his western movies in the surrounding areas. Since then, the Hotel has been a destination over the years for artists of all types including authors, poets, photographers, musicians, actors, and designers.  As we embark on our next 100 years, we are launching ArtVendome, an Artist in Residency program to bring art to the forefront of our hotel’s history and community.


Hotel Vendome is located downtown Prescott, Arizona and within walking distance to galleries, museums, restaurants, and bars.  Known as Arizona’s Hometown, Prescott sits up at 5,367 feet and is surrounded by mountains, lakes, forest, outdoor beauty, and fresh air.  We believe the hotel’s history, charm, and presence along with the abundance of nature nearby will inspire artists. We hope to inspire and support you as you continue your growth as an artist.


The Residency:


The Artist in Residence (AIR) program is a four week program where emerging artists are invited to stay at the hotel to create and showcase their work to guests and locals.   This is a great opportunity for an artist to display their work with no limit on the artist’s medium of choice. Each AIR will be given free accommodation during the residency.



  • Residency Length: 4 weeks 

  • Lodging: Hotel Vendome will provide a private room & bathroom to the artist to live/work.  The room will include a bed, wifi, fridge, microwave, desk, and chair.

  • Art Space: Hotel Vendome will allocate an area to the artist for their craft. 

  • Art Contribution: We ask the Artist to contribute a piece of art from their time here that is relevant to the hotel or city to add to our permanent collection.

  • Community: Artist will work with Hotel to put on events centered around Artist.  Examples of events could include:

    • Teach a class to educate hotel guests and the general public.
