Support Goldwell

Goldwell Open Air Museum & Artist Residency depends on the public’s interest, generosity and support in order to continue the services we provide to artists, writers and composers, and to the public and help preserve a unique piece of Nevada’s history.

Goldwell Open Air Museum is classified as a 501(c)3 nonprofit tax exempt organization by the Internal Revenue Service and all contributions are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

We estimate that a one-month residency for an artist, writer or composer costs approximately $2,500. The artist-in-residence is provided a monetary stipend, travel support, a private bedroom in the 2,000 sq. ft Goldwell House, 24-hour studio access to the Red Barn Art Center, staff support, uninterrupted time, and the extraordinary experience of creating in the Amargosa Desert landscape.
