Mission Statement

The Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists is an open and diverse group of artists, collectors and admirers who share a love for the practice and perpetuation of botanical art and illustration with a fond focus on plants in the Rocky Mountain Region.
We encourage and participate in educational outreach, juried and non-juried exhibits, lectures, workshops and regular chapter meetings. The RMSBA is proud to be the very first chapter affiliation of the international organization, the American Society of Botanical Artists.

Hooray for us!

MyLife.com (Click HERE to go to the article) )compiled a list of the 10 best cities in which artists can thrive. Starting with a list of the 50 most populous cities in the U.S., they scored various metrics including cost of living, resident age, number of arts industry professionals, number of museums and galleries and household income and weighted the scores based on importance. Here are the top 10:

1. Atlanta
2. Seattle

3. San Francisco

4. Austin

5. Denver

6. Nashville

7. Minneapolis

8. Boston

9. Portland

10. Las Vegas

Denver achieved its ranking in part because of the percentage of the population working in the arts industry and the number of galleries and museums to visit.
