A Closer Look at the Iowa Prairie: Photographs by Justin Hayworth

August 17 – October 11, 2015
Burling Gallery

At one time prairie dominated the Iowa landscape.  Now, less than 0.1% of the original Iowa prairie remains. Justin Hayworth’s macro photographs invite viewers to take a closer look at the beauty of prairie plants, celebrate the intricate aesthetics of prairie life, and teach about the unintended consequences of development.
