Art in Nature Trail

The Art in Nature Trail invites you to experience art in an outdoor, fully immersive space. Local artists of all levels create beautiful designs using natural materials, and their pieces are on display throughout the festival. Originally inspired by the work of Andy Goldsworthy (www.goldsworthy.cc.gla.ac.uk), this event has grown into a festival favorite for artists and audiences alike.

Interested in creating an outdoor work of art? No experience is needed! Contact August Jackson, Interpretation Coordinator at 541 741-4110 or Interpretation@MountPisgahArboretum.org. Installation date is Saturday, May 20th, display date is Sunday, May 21st.
