Come experience a space transformed by stimulating, whimsical fine art created by vibrant, provocative artists from 27 states. The vulnerabilities of our planet’s fauna and flora are such relevant topics today and using captivating mixed media and sculptural techniques, these artists capture so much of the essence of nature and it’s impact on our life.
