The Rural Environments Field School & Archive is a collaborative initiative between the University of Colorado Extraordinary Program, the non-profit design group M12-STUDIO, and the Sculpture and Post-Studio Practice area at CU-Boulder. The physical office and archive is located at Studio 283 of the Visual Arts Complex in the Department of Art and Art History on the CU-Boulder campus. The program is directed by Richard Saxton.
The Rural Environments Field School & Archive additionally maintains facilities at the Mountain Research Station near Ward, Colorado and at The Feed Store in Byers, Colorado. Our geographical focus area is at the confluence of The Great Plains and Rocky Mountain West, covering over ten states: Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming.
