Event details

This ongoing exhibit will be on display from Friday, Dec. 1, to Friday, Jan. 26. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays to Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays. 

Take a break from the grays and whites of winter and become immersed in a world of color. Hidden Oaks Nature Center joined efforts with the Bolingbrook Arts Council to curate an art exhibit inspired by all the wonders of the natural world. Local artists will be displaying their take on nature and what calls to them from the wild. This will be a perfect way to connect to the great outdoors during the winter season.

Engage with the art pieces and vote for your favorite to award artists the People’s Choice and the Kids’ Choice awards. Continue to explore and appreciate the art by challenging yourself and your family and friends to an I Spy Art Scavenger Hunt. Who will find the intricate details that may have been missed at first glance?
