The Wild Landscape: Zumwalt Prairie


The Wild Landscape educates the general public on the wonders of the Zumwalt Prairie, and also focuses on exhibiting it’s beauty through the eyes of over twenty artists from the Pacific North West. Interpretations of the Zumwalt Prairie are done in various mediums, ranging from oil painting, poetry, film, photography, and much more. To produce this exhibit, the artists and writers gathered on June 16 to begin the week-long creative project to capture the landscapes, flowers, animals, and essence of The Zumwalt. Their work depicts the wild nature of The Zumwalt Prairie Preserve, and also considers the question of what “wild” means in landscape that has been influenced, harvested, and managed by humans for millennia.

The exhibit catalogue includes all paintings and photographs in the exhibit, as well as the full text of poems, essays, and stories; and introductions by The Nature Conservancy’s Jeff Fields, and exhibit curator Ellen Morris Bishop.
