Local artist Anna Webb created the educational mosaic to show the animals, birds, insects and plants found near rivers.
“It’s a challenge to recreate the animals as accurately as possible, and it looks wonderful there,” said Webb. “The site is beautiful. The light is so pretty, and it smells really good, and the sounds and the people. It’s clearly a place that people like to go.”
The idea is to use public art both to beautify and educate. You can find the new mosaic outdoors along the stream pathway among the native animals and plants that are featured in the artwork. It will be another attraction for the many thousands of visitors who enjoy the MK Nature Center.
The mosaic was initiated and funded by the Friends of MK Nature Center, with support from the Boise City Arts and History Department.
Thank you Anna!
