Have You Seen These Stunning Sculptures at an Illinois Arboretum?
Just under three hours away from Kalamazoo sits a gorgeous arboretum that is home to a handful of gorgeous, towering sculptures meant to inspire awe and wonder.
The Morton Arboretum, in Illinois, has a number of features that make it very appealing to nature lovers. That includes 16 miles of hiking trails, a Maze Garden, a Children's Garden, classes, and a variety of exhibitions.
One of the more breath-taking exhibits is the Human+Nature which features five sculptures that tower 15 to 24 feet created by artist Daniel Popper. The purpose of the exhibit is to help people feel more connected to nature as they explore parts of the Arboretum they may have otherwise missed. Check it out:
