Minnesota's Boreal Forest at Risk: Vanishing Trees and Plants

08 Mar 2011 9:18 PM | Anonymous
Dear friends,

I am honored and thrilled to be part of an important project.   It is called Minnesota’s Boreal Forest at Risk:  Vanishing Trees and Plants.  You can take a look at our website for information about the project, participants and exhibits.  http://www.mnborealart.com/Trees/Home.html

 We are a group of 10 artists and three scientific advisors creating a traveling exhibit about the boreal forest in Minnesota and the changes it has started to undergo.  It is a great opportunity to educate the public.  There will be scientific information from the work of Dr. Lee Frelich and others about the reasons for changes in Minnesota’s boreal forest both online and at the exhibits.

We will be exhibiting botanical art showing many of the plants that will be affected by the changes.  Many people are unfamiliar with traditional botanical art.  We hope that through our exhibits more people will come to appreciate this art form.

We expect that this project will be continued for several years.  Be sure to check the website periodically for updates on exhibits, subject matter and artwork.  Feel free to pass this message on to others.
