Art With Me

Human+Nature will be South African artist Daniel Popper’s largest exhibition to date. 20- to 25-foot-tall sculptures will be installed across 1700 acres of The Morton Arboretum. Using thought-provoking human forms paired with elements of nature, each piece will bring attention to the connections between humans and the trees and create a sense of awe and wonder. The installations will include a towering interpretation of a Mother Nature figure welcoming Arboretum visitors to interact by walking inside the sculpture.
