Prairie Art Auction


We’re bringing the Flint Hills home with this year’s Prairie Art Auction. Our annual fundraiser is taking place entirely online, hosted by our friends at KC Auction & Appraisal. From dewy tallgrass to amber sunsets and the Milky Way-lit sky, artists from all over the world have captured the transcendent beauty of the prairie in every season.

Help us celebrate these artists and their work. View the gallery online and place a bid through May 31.
