The Prairie in Art and Literature with Cindy Crosby
February 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
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.”
