Artists in Residence

Years before Yaddo began operating as an artists’ retreat at Spencer and Katrina Trask’s property, the couple built Wakonda Lodge and hosted artists from the Art Students League of New York. Young artists, such as Georgia O’Keeffe, spent summers painting at Wiawaka.  In the summer of 2016, we continued that tradition by hosting talented artists who took up “residence” in Wakonda. We have been welcoming a talented group of artists since.
