Arts for Lawrence Seeks Faerie Garden Exhibition Artists



Faerie Garden Art Exhibition

Arts in the Parks, Arts for Lawrence

Arts for Lawrence is looking for entries of hand-made Faerie Gardens to be on exhibit at the Fort Harrison State Park in July/August 2017. This is part of a state-wide celebration of Arts in the State Parks and Historic Places made possible by the Indiana Arts Commission.

This art exhibition is open to the public. All entries are eligible to be on display if they fit within the parameters listed below and the artist has registered with Arts for Lawrence.

Faerie gardens are judged by the following categories: Creativity, Artistic Quality, Craftsmanship, and the use of Indiana native materials. Two competitions, one for adults and one for youth, will result in the award of ribbons. Faerie Gardens will remain on display along the Harrison Trace Trail in hopes our native Indiana faeries find shelter.
