Throughout the ages, nature—from its most dramatic to its simplest wonder—has been an inspiration for art in all forms and mediums. Cincinnati Nature Center’s longtime association with the area’s artistic community began at the time of its founding more than 50 years ago. Back to Nature, in particular, has traditionally highlighted art created by local artists with regional, national, and international reputations. This event celebrates and commemorates our common connection to visual art and underscores the Nature Center’s commitment to artistic collaborations for years to come!
