The Morton Arboretum’s next major exhibition, Human+Nature, will highlight the deep connections between people and trees. Built to create a sense of awe and wonder, five massive sculptures created by South African artist Daniel Popper are featured within the backdrop of the Arboretum’s magnificent and mature tree collections. Each grand in size and appearance (20 to 25 feet tall), the sculptures are crafted especially for Arboretum visitors, Popper’s largest exhibition anywhere in the world. Installations include a towering interpretation of a Mother Nature figure welcoming Arboretum visitors to interact by walking inside the sculpture, large-scale human hands, diverse human facial traits interwoven with root structures, and a symbolic opening of the human heart. Nonmembers: $15/adult; $13/senior; $10/child.
