Artists find inspiration in the land

Oct 10, 2013

A new art show is the product of an interesting collaboration between artists and land owners. It will be at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens in Ann Arbor from October 12th until November 10th.

It's sponsored by The Legacy Land Conservancy and it's also a fundraiser for the non-profit. The organizers were hoping to find a way to help people learn more about the protected land that the organization helps secure.

That's when they came up with the idea of an art show. Or more specifically, they asked artists to create original artwork inspired by specific pieces of land in Washtenaw and Jackson counties.

You can hear an interview with one of the artists, who says he was surprised by they ways in which the land inspired him.
