Thanks to the Richmond Art Museum's Legacy Project, Hoosier artist, Rick Wilson is celebrating Indiana's State Park System's 100th anniversary, and the state's Bicentennial, with a traveling exhibit he calls "The Nature of Art: Painted Parks."
The 70 piece show opens Thursday evening, right here in Fort Wayne, at the Castle Gallery, with an opening reception that features a talk and painting demonstration by the artist.
WBOI's Julia Meek met with Wilson earlier this week, to learn what fuels his deeply-rooted Hoosier pride, and where this artistic adventure has taken him.
