Nature exhibit honors humans and herons.

Curated by this year’s Artist-in-Residence K. Tauches, the seven-week installation ending June 12 showcases various artforms honoring the landscape, spiritual presence and heritage of the Creek and Cherokee Indians who lived here 200 years ago.

“There are feelings in certain places each individual taps into when they walk through the Preserve, which is a sanctuary in the city,” Tauches says. “There are invisible histories and untold stories—cycles of appearances and disappearances of people, animals and plants. I encouraged artists to participate who are sensitive and attentive to the consciousness of the forest, wildlife and creek still remaining in this otherwise developed area.”

Plan your visit around the exhibit’s live performance schedule, including Claire Paul (above) on reed flute and poetry/ spoken word by Yusef Sullivan.
