Sonoran Desert Florilegium Program

Promoting the conservation and appreciation
of plants of the Sonoran Desert through botanical art

call for entries

The Sonoran Desert Florilegium Program has established a florilegium to document plants native to the Sonoran Desert region. A call for entries for artists to submit works to the Sonoran Desert Florilegium can be found here.

Submissions to the Florilegium must be two-dimensional works of botanical art, a requirement that excludes photography and digitally-created works.

Entries will be accepted twice a year, from July 1 to July 31, and from January 1 to January 31. Once accepted, these artworks will be displayed on this site in a unique section designed to highlight the artwork, the artists, and the plants.
