The Mission of Belle Thalia
Creative Arts Space

To provide emerging and established artists a
serene, sylvan environment for creative exploration
that is inspired by living in nature and is reflected
in the art practice.

Our Goal
To support committed artists whose work
corresponds with nature and is connected to place.

Set in the midst of 160 acres of mixed forest in northern
Minnesota’s lake country the Belle Thalia Residency offers a
yurt dwelling, limited studio space, and outdoor clearings for work.

The studio of sculptor Al Belleveau uses many salvaged
materials which suggest a certain lifestyle that is independent,
sustainable and closely connected to the landscape.

Because of the resident artist’s profound connection
to the surrounding environment , the hope is that the
residency program will foster work inspired by the site.

The Vision
