See an Art Exhibit on the Prairie

Community artists interpret the theme “Roots & Wings” for their displays, from the literal (like a winged owl) to the metaphorical.

Visit the Wallace Farm in Orient for a unique art experience. As you wander through 9 acres of restored prairie, a surprise painting may appear. About 80 art pieces are scattered along the farm paths, all created by community artists of varying ages and skill levels.

Each work is inspired by this year’s theme, “Roots & Wings.” The theme connects back to the flora and fauna of the prairie, like birds, butterflies, bees, native plants, or even cultural roots and heritage. The exhibit is free to view and open dawn until dusk until Oct. 1.
