Nature's Art Gallery

See Art in Nature Nature's Art Gallery at Pine Point, Frame #10

Park visitors are invited to see nature from an artist’s perspective with Nature’s Art Gallery. Hike a trail and enjoy spectacular views and natural elements like you would art in a gallery. Natural elements will be "framed" to highlight form, composition, function, and color. The ever-changing, natural surroundings will offer a different view every hour of the day. In these busy times, participants will gain a greater appreciation for the beauty of nature that is often overlooked.
