Art on display at the Big Thicket

Big Thicket National Preserve has announced the installation of a new temporary art exhibit in the park’s visitor center. Titled “All the Little Things,” this art installation, a part of the Dream Rocket Project, encouraged students throughout Texas to create more than 70 pieces of art highlighting the vast array of plants and animals found in the Thicket. Each piece represents the student’s unique perspective on the diversity of the natural environment throughout this region.

The Stark Museum of Art features Paul Kane: Intrepid Artist and Adventurer, a special exhibition of an artist who overcame obstacles in his artistic quest. Paul Kane (1810-1871) wanted to record the landscape and the people of North America before they changed. From 1845-48, Kane camped and canoed across the continent, sketching in watercolor and oil paints along the way. The exhibition includes over 120 rarely seen works of art and manuscripts. It will be on view through June 2, 2018.
