Prairie Art Exhibit & Festival

The first-ever Prairie Art Exhibit and Festival was a success in 2019 with nearly 80 painted exhibits created by community members on display in the 9 acres of restored Iowa prairie at the Henry A. Wallace Country Life Center.

The one-day Prairie Art Festival featured educational displays about prairies, U-pick apples, a scavenger hunt, live music, lawn games, and scheduled prairie walks.

Volunteers are needed for the 2020 festival and exhibit. Please contact Deb Houghtaling.

Create Prairie Art

We helped community residents explore their creativity with botanical art classes at the Country Life Center during September 2019. Professional artists guided participants through the entire process. We offered 4 classes:

  • Botanical Water Color
  • Sunprint Paper
  • Sunprint Scarves

Event Sponsor

Supported in part by the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs.
