At the Warren Cultural Center in Greenfield is “Prairie Art Exhibit Indoors”. Open noon-3 pm each Thursday, Friday and Saturday during May. The indoor display is from 2019’s Prairie Art Exhibit: 80+ wildflower paintings by local artists age 3 to 79. Support for “Prairie Art Exhibit Indoors” and the 2019 exhibit & festival was provided in part by the Iowa Arts Council. 2020 theme: “Pollinators”. Finished boards must be dropped off by June 5. Volunteers are needed to prepare the boards for display. The 2020 exhibit is June 27 - August 29. Thanks to the Knock Family Charitable Fund, there's no charge for the 2020 Prairie Art Exhibit.
