Our Artist-in-Residence studio is located at the Horse Shed, just above the Belvedere summer house in the Horse Shed Meadow. The Horse Shed, designed by Theodor Muller and built in 1961, was originally constructed to house Mary Rockefeller's horses. The artist studio, in the rehabilitated Rockefeller Horse Shed, is off the grid with a 230 watt solar photovoltaic system. The renovation of this building was designed by SAS Architects of Burlington, Vermont, the same firm who designed the Forest Center, the park's Platinum LEED certified classroom and meeting space.
