This exhibition gives voice to the prairie and provides opportunities for all ages to discover its form and beauty. The exhibition complements the nearby outdoor Meadow as well as art displayed in other galleries, including Jim Richardson’s photographs of prairie root systems. Prairie Views includes photographs of prairie fires by Larry Schwarm and a collage-print related to the Ogallala aquifer by Lynn Benson, among other images.
