Natural Resources Visual Artist Program

Artists of all ages - grab your paintbrushes, pencils and cameras and help inspire people's appreciation of open spaces through your artwork! The selected "Artist of the Year" will have the opportunity to create a piece of visual art inspired by one of Larimer County's parks or open spaces, which the artist will donate to the County. The Larimer County Department of Natural Resources will host a public celebration of the final submitted artwork, display the work for public viewing in a Larimer County building and publicize the selected artist whenever appropriately possible. The artist will host one public art-related program in order to increase people's appreciation of open spaces through art.
