Dorland Mountain Art Colony became a nonprofit agency with the Nature Conservancy in 1979. It is located in the foothills east of Temecula off Highway 79 and offers two programs, a Residency Program and the Associate Artists Program.
The Residency Program provides a secluded working retreat for national and international artists, writers, musicians and composers. Four furnished, secluded artist cottages are available on weekends or weekly with special rates for members. Thousands of established artists, musicians and writers have stayed at the colony in the past.
The Associate Artists Program was created to benefit local and regional artists. These visual artists, writers, musicians and supporters of the arts meet to discuss, plan and implement activities that support Dorland, the regional arts community and each other. Together, with Dorland’s staff and board of directors, they organize exhibits, readings and music concerts, set up the annual open house festival and contribute to special projects at Dorland.
