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.

Check out how recent artist Jodi Reeb put together the piece Synthesis currently on display outside the Conservatory.
