Illustrations in giant full bloom!
Last summer, I worked on a project that involved many illustrations from the Tallgrass Prairie ABC book, and new ones, too. Now this work is part of the main lobby and children's area exhibits in a new natural history museum in Manhattan, Kansas. The Flint Hills Discovery Center opened it's door April 14th, and now interprets the beautiful native prairie (similar to our own Iowa Tallgrass) in a lovely, spacious facility. My work was enlarged into a big mural. You can see it on the mezzanine that surrounds the lobby. Don't let 8 foot-high Greater prairie chickens scare you off!
Here's a photo of the mural taken by Kansan studio Szel Photography. It's the first I've seen of the finished interior. Looks fabulous! I can' t wait to go down in early summer to see the place in person.
Thanks to the Szels for letting me post their photo:
