An Exhibit of The Josephy Center for Arts & Culture
The Wild Landscape: Art and Words of the Zumwalt Prairie offers a snapshot of The Nature Conservancy’s Zumwalt Prairie Preserve in mid-June—the peak flowering season. To produce this exhibit, the artists and writers gathered on June 16 to begin the week-long creative project to capture the landscapes, flowers, animals, and essence of The Zumwalt.
Their work depicts the wild nature of The Zumwalt Prairie Preserve, and also considers the question of what “wild” means in landscape that has been influenced, harvested, and managed by humans for millennia.
The exhibit catalogue includes all paintings and photographs in the exhibit, as well as the full text of poems, essays, and stories; and introductions by The Nature Conservancy’s Jeff Fields, and exhibit curator Ellen Morris Bishop.
