The Visions of the Flint Hills Show will be on display from October 7th, 2015 through November 25th, 2016 at Buttonwood Art Space at 3013 Main Street, Kansas City, Missouri 64108.
Diane Barker, President of Friends of Konza Prairie, states, “That three-fold mission of research, education, and conservation is vitally important, but you can’t really understand the passion that drives those activities until you see the art the Flint Hills inspires. When an artist hauls canvas, paint and an easel out to paint a stretch of grass and sky, an intimacy is created that takes on a life of its own. When a photographer chases a fire at night to catch the bright necklace circling a hill, that devotion to capturing how people relate to their land enriches our understanding. This is a great show because it celebrates not only beauty but an enduring dependence all people have on the place that shelters and feeds them. Come celebrate this unique landscape and help us protect it for future generations.”
