Colorado Art Ranch and the Aldo Leopold Wilderness Research Institute are hosting one-month residencies in six different wilderness biomes throughout the United States. Artists will be collecting data with researchers and creating their own work in response.
The project, entitled Aldo & Leonardo, is inspired by the scientific wisdom of Aldo Leopold and the artistic genius of Leonardo da Vinci. During 2013, the U.S. Forest Service’s Aldo Leopold Wilderness Research Institute (ALWRI) and Colorado Art Ranch will sponsor small groups of visiting artists and resident scientists for one-month shared residencies in or near six wilderness sites. The scientists and artists – visual, literary, and performing – will collaborate to produce a body of work that creatively illustrates the value of wild areas and honors the scientific efforts to preserve wilderness.
