The Forest and the Trees

Seeing the Forest and the Trees

The Wild Center invited artists to submit works of art that captured their perspectives on the northern forest and the trees that make up their structure and essence.

The art you see in this exhibit was selected by a panel of scientists, educators, curators, and artists. Every artist was asked the question “How do you see the forest?”. Words from the artists along with their work reveal the many ways we can experience the forest and the trees.

The works of art in this exhibit are on loan from the artists. If you are interested in acquiring one of the pieces in the show, the Wild Supply Company will facilitate your purchase from the artist.
