Art of the Land raises awareness of TLC and the work it does. TLC is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the conservation and preservation of our most valuable and threatened heritage - our McHenry County landscape. TLC’s mission is to preserve natural, agricultural and scenic land in perpetuity in McHenry County by working with individuals, communities and other partners. TLC has preserved over 2,500 acres within McHenry County.
Art of the Land is one of TLC’s major fundraising events of the year, and monies raised help support land conservation here in McHenry County. All art considered for this event must be consistent with the theme of the event:
“Art that reflects or is inspired by the local landscape and all it provides.”
Art for purchase, photography, *Atrocious Poets, People’s Choice photo contest voting, raffle, Friday night music by Mark Hobbs, Saturday night music by Peter Swenson Jazz Trio, appetizers and a cash bar.
*Improvisational poetry group.
