The Denver Botanic Gardens and the GNSI are pleased to announce a premier juried exhibition opportunity for GNSI members only, highlighting the subject matter of plants, birds, and pollinators.

GNSI LEGACY PROJECT  ///Is there a Legacy Project page on new site?

GNSI members have a wealth of scientific illustrations accompanied by decades of research and sketches. An archive of these works is appealing for family members not wishing to keep every file or piece of paper forever, and for illustrators who want to make their life's work accessible to a broad range of students, researchers and budding illustrators. There will be a selection process; the GNSI and our host institution will determine what is appropriate to include. Individual members will decide what they would like considered. Future goals include a digital archive as well.

We now have a potential institution interested in hosting our archives. In order to make this project a reality, we need to present our host with specifics, and this is where we need your help. If you have the slightest interest in housing some of your works in a permanent archive of scientific illustrators, now or in the future, please answer the following questions. You may contact Gretchen Halpert directly with your answers, or you can answer the electronic questionnaire online.
