Art Drawn From Nature III – Fire
Saturday September 9 – Sunday, November 12, 2023
Continuing with the thematic connection to KNC’s main exhibit hall, Art Drawn from Nature III will be inspired by Fire: Rekindling Land and People. Artists will explore fire as subject matter, the essential role it plays in their art making process, and its relationship to the environment.
Nature’s Way Preschool Art Show
Saturday November 18, 2023 – Sunday, January 7, 2024
Inspired by prescribed fire and the plants and animals that rely on burns for healthy habitats, this exhibit will feature artwork by the little ones of KNC’s Nature’s Way Preschool. Come experience the whimsy of children’s artwork through the month of December.
Enjoy a leisurely stroll through the Arboretum on a self-guided Sculpture Tour. Some are easy to find, such as the beautiful marble “Snowy Owl” by Paul Keeslar. Others, like Robert Cumpston’s “Squirrel,” are a bit more of a fun challenge … see if you can find his hiding place!
Stop in to Guest Services for a copy of the Sculpture Tour brochure. Online version coming soon!
