Garfield Park Conservatory Artist in Residence Program

Submitted by nclark on Thu, 05/18/2017 - 7:18am

The Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance is pleased to introduce our Fall 2017 Artist in Residence program, funded by the Albert Pick Jr Fund. The program invites one Chicago-based artist to adopt our 14 acres of public indoor and outdoor gardens and private propagation greenhouses as a site for investigation, research and inspiration for new works. Artists of any medium whose practices are established within the realm of nature, science and/or conservation are invited to apply. The program provides a rare opportunity for an artist to enrich their practice through hands-on investigation of raw plant materials, growing practices and access to horticulturists and naturalists; and provides the artist with a public platform for sharing their work. Through a series of public presentations and a Spring 2018 exhibitthe artist’s work will provide a new perspective through which the public may connect to the Garfield Park Conservatory's collection and programs.  Visit our website for more info and submission guidelines:
