Larimer County Department of Natural Resources is seeking applicants for its Visual Artist program.

The artist is expected to donate the artwork to Larimer County upon its completion.
The Department of Natural Resources will host a public celebration of the artwork, display the piece for public viewing at a Larimer County building, publicize the Artist of the Year whenever appropriate and reimburse the artist for the cost to frame the artwork.
