Summer Arts: Inspired by the National Parks
An Art Exhibition Featuring the Work of U.S. National Park Artists in Residence
In conjunction with Wisconsin Lutheran College's popular Summer Arts in the Park concerts, the Schlueter Art Gallery will host an art exhibit celebrating the work of U.S. National Park Artists in Residence. Artists, along with writers and poets, have played a major historical role in establishing national parks, inspiring Congress and the public to protect the unique and diverse landscapes of America because of their art. Artists continue the tradition today. More than 29 national parks, monuments and wildlife refuges select and host artists each year to make artworks reflecting the special qualities of each place and their individual response from a contemporary, current perspective.
The Wisconsin Lutheran College Schlueter Art Gallery is privileged to host a sampling of past artists in residence including Diane Bywaters, Kathleen M. Heideman, Kathy Hodge, Joyce Koskenmaki, Geri Schrab, and Wisconsin Lutheran College art professor Kristin Gjerdset.
