In 2020, the Foundation launched the Modern Ancient Brown Artist Residency, a one-month literary residency, located in McArthur Binion’s Detroit studio; a renovated church rectory designed in the mid-century modern style; made popular by Michigan’s art and architecture community. The residency program will make invitations to a diverse group of emerging artists, who traditionally create in visual mediums; and in conjunction with a $10,000 grant, encourage them to take the time and space to explore and tell their own stories.
