The Prairie in Art and Literature with Cindy Crosby

February 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

February 24

Wednesday, 7-8:30 p.m. CST

The Morton Arboretum

The tallgrass prairie is usually thought of for its diverse community of plants, animals, and insects. Yet, it is also inspiration for a creative community! In this interactive online talk, natural history author  and prairie steward Cindy Crosby will explore historical and contemporary writers and artists, musicians, and other creatives working in the prairie genre: from Neil Young to Willa Cather to graphic comic artists  and jewelers expressing prairie through their work. 

See the prairie in a new light! Come away inspired to appreciate and express your love of the tallgrass as you enjoy learning about this prairie “community.”
