It is nature like never before! Come see what happens when local, national, and international artists become inspired by the great outdoors beginning June 2011 and running through November 27,2011.
Commissioned just for the Arboretum, Nature Unframed: Art at the Arboretum enchants visitors with striking pieces including a crocheted tree and a stunning Blue Ash tree on canvas.
