On Monday, June 7, 2010 at 9:00 a.m., Nature Artists’ Guild members will have a wonderful opportunity to attend a tour of and sketch or paint the prairie walk at world-renowned Fermilab.
We will meet and park at the Lederman Science Center of Fermilab (http://www.fnal.gov/pub/visiting/map/site.html) for a 9:30 tour of their prairie, given by botanist Ryan Campbell and master gardener Mary Jo Murphy.
After the tour, we are welcome to stay to sketch or paint for as long as we’d like (their public sites are open until 8 pm). Please visit Fermilab’s website for more information on their natural areas “including hundreds of acres that are being restored to tallgrass prairie that last flourished in Abraham Lincoln’s youth”, and wildlife.( http://www.fnal.gov/pub/about/campus/ecology/prairie/index.html)
This exciting invitation by Fermilab curator Georgia Schwender, came as a result of her attendance at the recent NAG exhibit at the Fine Line Creative Arts Center. Please contact Suzanne Wegener to RSVP.
