Artist In Residency

 Artist in Residence

The Montana Natural History Center’s Artist in Residency program connects artists with an inspiring number of bones, mounts, and specimens from our collection. The artist has unique access to these items during a month long residency.

Throughout the month (usually January or February) the artist creates a body of work inspired by the specimens. The artist will then work with MNHC staff to photograph the work for marketing. In March or April MNHC will host a First Friday Gallery Opening of the work. During one Saturday of this month the artist will spend time at MNHC speaking to the public about their work and assisting the public in creating art along a similar theme.

To apply please submit a CV and a portfolio of 10-15 pieces ( jpegs 72-300 dpi resolution, no more than 1500 pixels on the longest side)  to HKlier [at] MontanaNaturalist [dot] org. Subject; Artist in Residence Program. Submissions are accepted from July- November 15.

Please see our Gallery Submission and Show Guidelines for more information on our shows and the work we accept.
