I mentioned that we made a trip to Morris, MN the other day. Today I’m excited to share the reason for our trip!
The University of Minnesota – Morris purchased these five pictures for the new, sustainable Green Prairie Living & Learning Community building on campus. That means the prints are also part of the University’s permanent collection!
These pictures are part of the ‘Winter Prairie’ series I worked on in 2013 featuring images from the urban prairie restoration garden near my home. I’m pleased that these wild prairie darlings are now permanently situated in their natural environment: a true prairie ecosystem in western Minnesota.

Let it twirl, baby!
Congratulations Terra! Your winter prairie series is so beautiful, now these great pieces are in a deserving place. I truly love prairies, and you’ve been able to share the beauty of a prairie in all seasons, not just the summer blooming season.
Thanks, Emy! The prairie is such a riot in summer – it’s cool to see how peaceful the muted colors are in winter – along with such spectacular form in all the dried seeds and stalks!
