We actively encourage our participants to engage across differences in age, regional location, race, and gender identity, learning what it means to be a community by participating in one.” - Ox-Bow School of Art

Our neighbors are special to us. Ox-Bow School of Art was established in 1910 and is situated in Saugatuck, Michigan, just up the road from Virtue Farm. It continues its mission of connecting artists to a network of creative resources, people, and ideas. The campus is an energizing natural environment with a rich artistic history. 

We’re supporting Ox-Bow with a cider called The Resident Artist. The Resident Artist pays homage to Ox-Bow’s residency program that encourages artists from all walks of life to exchange ideas, share meals, and make art together. Twenty-five percent of all bottle sales will directly benefit Ox-Bow School of Art.

The Resident Artist is a hard cider made like wine with Michigan apples and cherries and is 7.9% ABV (alcohol by volume). From the first sip, intense cherry, red apple, and dried fruit hits your palate.
