River Sojourn with Sara Lubinski

Thursday, November 6, 5:30 p.m.
Jaques Gallery, free with museum admission

For the past two years, artist Sara Lubinski has been trekking the bluffs and valleys of the Driftless Region. These blufflands were skipped over by the last glaciation and weren't flattened and buried. Instead, streams  have cut deep valleys through the limestone bedrock leaving high bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River.

Drawing on her experience as a botanist, Lubinski has created a series of paintings that record habitats there that are not found anywhere else in our region, on display in River Sojourn. In this informal gallery tour, Lubinski will discuss her artistic quest to explore the beauty of this unique landscape.
