Sharing the Mountain Lake community with artists-in-residence each summer has led to some exciting new perspectives and appreciation for the aesthetic wonders of both our science and our surrounds. The Lucile Walton ArtLab Fellowship supports the visit of one prominent artist each season. Gifts go to this fellowship and to support other ArtLab artists-in-residence.
