Event details

This ongoing event will be held from Wednesday, Jan. 3, to Sunday, Jan. 28. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays to Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays.

Explore Hidden Oaks through a new lens! Bring your phone or camera to fill our available frames with nature. Visit the front desk to pick up a frame that speaks to you. There will be different shapes and sizes to choose from. Take it outside and photograph whatever inspires you through the frame. Is it your favorite tree, a trail of tracks or a view from the lakes? Discover a new perspective when thinking inside the box within a new framework! Select your favorite photo and send it to us to be included in our Fill the Frame Photography Exhibit in February.
