Celebrating Lincolnshire's wild plants
Thank you to all the artists who submitted a piece for our Lincspirational Plants art exhibition!
From more than 130 that were submitted, 30 artworks have been selected to represent 30 Inspirational Plants reminding us of the link between plants and creativity, and how they symbolise the value and importance of our connection with the natural world.
The artworks have been curated into an exhibition that will be projected onto buildings at sites around Lincolnshire. The pieces are also reproduced as postcards for sale to raise funds for further Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust wild plant propagation projects.
