At Ayatana we believe that part of the artist’s job is to see the world from extraordinary points of view. Our initiative is to help artists achieve those points of view by facilitating research opportunities in unusual places.

We specialize in science and host regular programs on Biology where we gain access to laboratories, abandoned mines, private fossil beds, farms and wild life centers.

  In 2017 we will host several non science programs for artists to study human relationships with water, abandoned buildings and esoteric art practices.

Our artists enjoy visits with a range of experts who are eager to share their unusual points of view in ways that are often off limits to ordinary people.
