Casa Grande Ruins Call For Artists
The Friends of Casa Grande Ruins & Casa Grande Ruins National Monument are seeking an artist to create illustrations for our new plant & pollinator field guide.
What are we looking for?
We are seeking an experienced local artist to create approximately 50 detailed, full-color scientific illustrations (drawings, paintings) of Sonoran Desert plants, animals, and cultural landscapes. These illustrations will be used in an identification field guide for our brand-new pollinator garden and will support the establishment of a citizen science education program with local youth. Illustrations may also be used in outdoor exhibits to further interpret the pollinator garden space and the cultural history of Casa Grande Ruins National Monument. Targeted completion date for illustrations is late winter – early spring of 2023
The Friends of Casa Grande Ruins will retain sole ownership/copyright to all illustrations. Artist will be permitted to showcase illustrations on personal websites and social media with attribution to the Friends of Casa Grande Ruins clearly visible. Artist cannot sell, transmit, or otherwise distribute the illustrations without prior written permission from the Friends of Casa Grande Ruins.
