The work on display depicts creatures isolated and threatened by their diminishing habitats. The annual Hartman Reserve Visiting Artist program offer an individual or ensemble in search of creative endeavors the opportunity to pursue their artistic discipline while being surrounded by Hartman Reserve’s inspiring landscape and wildlife. Partners and sponsors for the 2019 round of the program are: Catherine Ann Livingston Fund at the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa, Hearst Center for the Arts, Friends of Hartman Reserve and Friends of the Waterloo Center for the Arts.
