On June 1, 2012, the Efroymson Conservation Center will open its doors to an exhibit that showcases our conservation work side by side with the nature-inspired artwork of Pat Brentano. Running from June 1 through July 20, the exhibit will present thought-provoking artwork and photographs that focus on native Indiana habitats and the species that rely on them for survival.
Pat Brentano, a native of Evansville, Indiana, is a graduate of the Washington University (St. Louis) School of Fine Art and received her MFA from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University. Her work is about observation, exploration, and a deep spiritual attachment to the natural world.
There will be a special reception for Conservancy members on Saturday June 2, and two Friday evening receptions in conjunction with Indianapolis Downtown’s First Friday Showcase of the Arts. Guided tours will be offered each Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 1-4 pm, June 6-July 20.
