Denver Botanic Gardens
The Denver Botanic Gardens has announced that applications are open for their 2016 artist in residency program. The Summer2016 residency provides an opportunity for the selected illustrator/artist to get involved in a variety of activities at the Denver Botanic Gardens, including open studios, demonstrations and educational projects in the classroom or the Science Pyramid, to online documentation and educational outreach. Last year’s artist in residence was Ikumi Kayama, who you might have met at the “Weird, Wild & Wonderful” Symposium at The Huntington last summer.

There are two residency opportunities, each for a period of six weeks:
June 13 – July 22 OR
August 8 – September 22

The closing date for submissions for the Denver Botanic Gardens artist in residency program is February 29, 2016. The selection process will be completed by March 4, 2016.

The Denver Botanic Gardens are located at: 1007 York Street, Denver, CA 80206.

Artist-at-Sea Program
It’s not botanical art, but if you’re dreaming of getting away from it all, the Schmidt Ocean Institute is looking for artists of broad disciplines to work with scientists and the ship’s crew aboard the Falkor. In February, the Falkor will sail out of Tahiti to study the underexplored submarine vents off the Society Islands in the South Pacific Ocean.

View all the details on the Schmidt Ocean website. Bookmark the website to view other opportunities as they arise.

The application deadline is January 10, 2016.
