Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts presents Tributaries of Earth and Water: An Exhibition Celebrating Our National Parks, in collaboration with Project Art for Nature. The exhibition celebrates the landscape, wildlife and waterways encompassed by our local National Parks. Project Art for Nature is presenting exhibits throughout the communities within the Mississippi National River & Recreation Area, and the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway as part of the National Park Services “Find Your Park” initiative.
Project Art for Nature (PAN) is a collaboration of artists and illustrators from Minnesota and Wisconsin working independently and collaboratively to create artwork which promotes stewardship of unique natural areas in our region. PAN artists work in a wide variety of media, including sculpture, paper cutting, and mixed media, an many different printmaking, painting and drawing media, including plein aire, watercolors, and even using natural fibers and pigments from the earth. PAN artists find inspiration from the natural world throughout the region, and from National Parks throughout the region and the country for this series of exhibitions.
Admission to the galleries are always free. Art Center hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm.
