Don't know it, really. They seem to be very involved in the community,and I'm sure it helps the local economy.

Vermont Studio center is a great place to work on art projects or writing for your stay of 2-4 weeks. Your experience will depend a lot of the group of people you are placed with. Unfortunately, the majority of the artists and writers during my stay were there to party and hook up- it was their big time away from work, family and significant others. I felt extremely out of place and isolated. I was able to get a lot of really wonderful work done that did benefit my career, but I tried to stay away from others after my first week. Married men hit on me- a lot, and the staff there openly forms temporary relationships with visitors. Most were married professors and married artists. And you're stuck with these people for 4 weeks and twice a day during mealtimes. Anyway, you may enjoy yourself. I hope you are able to connect with others on a more fulfilling level and get a lot of work done.

The Vermont Studio Center is a fantastic experience for artists and writers alike. A hidden gem in the historic Village of Johnson.
