The small community of Ucross received its name from the Pratt and Ferris Cattle Company cattle brand, a cattle brand that had a U with a cross beneath. This ranch turned into an 20,000-acre artist retreat when the Ucross Foundation opened its doors in 1981. Since its implementation, the Foundation has hosted 1,300 award-wining painters, printmakers, photographers, writers, composers and choreographers in their residency program. Artists are given uninterrupted time, accommodations and space to experiment and explore their fields.
The Ucross Foundation Art Gallery, located in the historic Big Red Barn, provides space for fine art exhibits throughout the year. Open Mon-Fri from 8:30 AM to 4 PM. Also open by appointments.
