The program provides an opportunity for artists to pursue their work in the inspiring landscape and history of Caribou Ranch. By sharing their art, we hope to add to residents’ enjoyment of open space lands and create a legacy of art preserved for future generations.
Applications for 2018 will open December 1, 2017 – February 15, 2018. If you would like us to send you an email when the application opens, please let us know.
Selected artists will stay in the historic DeLonde Barn at Caribou Ranch.
Artists can stay up to seven days during a period from July 1 through October 1.
The open space property offers a variety of landscapes to explore including streams, waterfalls, forests, and beautiful vistas. Moose, elk, black bears, beavers, bats and nearly 90 species of birds live within or pass through the area.
Also found on the property is the Blue Bird Mine complex where miners from the 1870s to the 1960s extracted silver ore. In the early 1900s, the site was a whistle stop for the Denver, Boulder & Western Railroad.
