  May 8 - September 20, 2020 - Picturing the Prairie, Paintings by Philip Juras, Chicago Botanic Garden, Glencoe, Illinois

Philip Juras’s exhibit of landscape paintings celebrates the rich aesthetics, ecology, and history of Illinois tallgrass prairies. Over a five-year period, guided by some of the foremost prairie conservationists in Illinois and by his own research, Juras traveled from his home in Georgia to the Chicago area and beyond to discover—and rediscover—a vision of an ecosystem that has virtually vanished in North America. Fifteen larger sized studio canvases and many smaller field paintings depicting remnants, restorations, and imagined re-creations take the viewer on a journey of prairie landscapes from the Wisconsin border to the southern end of the state.
