With the Willingshausen scholarship, two students or young graduates of art colleges and academies have been coming to the former artists’ colony every year since 1996. They are invited to bring the idea of the artists’ colony into the present and to engage with this special place and the rural region of the Schwalm from a contemporary perspective. For a period of three months each (February to April or September to November), the young artists live on site in the listed shepherd’s house and work in the studio rooms of the Gerhardt-von-Reutern-Haus. They conclude their stay with an exhibition at the Willingshausen Art Gallery and a catalogue.

Grez-sur-Loing Foundation / Hôtel Chevillon


The Foundation does not provide any grants itself. It rents out flats and studios to academies, other foundations and institutions that in turn award grants for residencies at the Hôtel Chevillon. On our website you find a list of organizations currently affiliated with the Foundation. The funding organizations’ target groups represent a wide spectrum of artistic and scientific disciplines, which makes the Hôtel Chevillon an exciting and stimulating place in which to work.
An application for a self-funded stay at Hôtel Chevillon is also possible.
