Kalamazoo Nature Center

(C) Estate of Charley Harper 2008

Charley Harper is famous in the art world for his simplistic views of nature. Birds, trees, and plants are depicted with lines, bold colors and carefully arranged, geometric shapes. That simplicity attracted the Kalamazoo Nature Center. It’s brought in an exhibit of Harper’s work to use as a teaching tool.
