Conservatory Artist-in-Residence Program


Our artist-in-residency program aims to incorporate environmental literature, history, photography and fine art with scientific research. Exposure to a wide range of plant materials and environments is a means to increase our interdisciplinarity in our course offerings and educate a diverse range of audiences. Presentations and workshops by artists, historians, botanical illustrators, musicians, writers and other creative media enrich students' perspectives on landscape and global change. ´╗┐Residencies are typically two to four weeks in length. Artists interested in participating should contact Curator Lisa Philander at phil0120@umn.edu.
