The Idaho Conservation League’s Artist in Residence program explores the nexus of art and nature. Launched in 2013, the program shares the beauty of the places we work to protect and tells stories of Idaho in creative new ways.

We know you’ve missed it… At a small hiatus, Idaho Conservation League’s Artist in Residence Program is back! 

In 2024, we’re calling on all sorts of artists, from all across the state—from the household names to up-and-comers—to demonstrate their love for Idaho’s environment through their chosen visual medium. Celebrate wild Idaho with us!
