Art in the Arboretum

Nature was the original inspiration for human art, and Nature continues to inspire our sense of creativity, wonder, and joy about the living world. The WSU Arboretum and Conservation Center will not only bridge the Art and Science communities, but the Arboretum will be an ever-changing canvas for the display of artwork with a strong nature theme. In addition to installation pieces and other art work, the Arboretum will provide an enriching and sensual environment for the performing arts when future facilities are constructed.
