 Art In The Wild was conceived with the goals of presenting quality outdoor art using natural materials, providing educational opportunities and community involvement. The works of art are composed of mostly natural materials to blend with Wildwood’s nature setting. The project was open to all. The exhibit is one more way to bring awareness to Wildwood’s mission – preserving, enhancing and interpreting the Park’s resources.
