Garfield Park Conservatory Artist in Residence Program

Deadline for Submission on July 10, 2017

The Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance is pleased to introduce the Fall 2017 Artist in Residence program, funded by the Albert Pick Jr Fund. The program invites one Chicago-based artist to adopt the 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 the link below for more information about the program and submission guidelines.
