Please join us for the the 2018 BLM Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry Artist-in-Residence exhibit. This exhibit features the works of outgoing artist Sandra Budd and incoming artist Terry Willis.
The reception for the artist will take place Thursday, Nov. 8 from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Prehistoric Museum and is free and open to the public, so please feel free to bring a friend. The exhibit runs through Nov. 10.
The Bureau of Land Management Artist-in-Residency program is founded on the belief that artists look closely at the way the world works, notice things that others may have missed, challenge ideas, experiment, and create new opportunities to look at the world. Artists see beauty and virtue in the public lands that are promised to future generations of Americans. The participants are encouraged to use their observational skills in portraying the variety of cultural and natural resources on BLM lands such as historic structures, artifacts, cultural landscapes, geologic features, and plant and animal life.
Ultimately, the artists translate the resources — the heart of BLM’s mission — into images, objects, and performances that bring others enjoyment and a deeper understanding of the public lands.
