Rare Imperiled Plants of Colorado

Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists (RMSBA) has organized a juried, traveling exhibit of 40 rare plants of Colorado. The exhibit is designed to introduce the public to the most imperiled plants in Colorado and educate them to the importance of protecting these plants. It also seeks to illustrate the usefulness that contemporary botanical art plays in ecological education and preservation today. The illustrated plants were selected from the Colorado Rare Plant Master List. The RMSBA will work with the Colorado Rare Plant Conservation Initiative to promote rare plant education at each showing. The exhibit debuted at Denver Botanic Gardens in March of 2009 and will continue on to the Steamboat Art Museum in Steamboat Springs and the Business of Art Center in Manitou Springs after its stay at the Center of Southwest Studies.
