The Forest Preserve’s Plum Creek Nature Center, in partnership with the Nature Foundation of Will County, is hosting a juried art competition featuring local artists. Enjoy artwork inspired by the theme “Sculpting WILD” in this one-of-a-kind art exhibition.
Tap into your wild side and vote for your favorite to win “the people’s choice” category. View constructed habitats, carved-out wild animals or molded blooming wildflowers among the collection. These sculptures look like they can nestle right into nature!
