Join artist Philip Juras for a presentation about the Museum’s latest temporary exhibit, “The Long view: Prairie Paintings from Illinois Nature Preserves.”  The exhibition features paintings from 18 nature preserves across Illinois that celebrate the 59-year legacy of the Illinois Nature Preserves Commission and offer a window into the past and present nature of the Prairie State. Juras will provide insight into his connection with the landscape and the perspectives that influence his art.

Admission is free. Registration is not required. This program is co-sponsored by the Illinois State Museum-Dickson Mounds and the Illinois Nature Preserve Commission.
