We welcome visiting artists throughout the year and here you can read about the personal residencies of visual artists and writers who come to Lake Chapala from around the world. Many of our visiting artists have made this an annual pilgrimage and some of them have decided to move here! You can also rent a live/work space for 1 – 4 months and spend time focusing on your work. See more about the Personal Residency.
Although many people think about coming to Mexico to get away from cold winters, many of our visiting artists also come in the summer to escape hot, humid weather. Thanks to the high elevation, our summers are glorious with daytime temperatures in the 70s and 80s and low humidity.
