ART AND NATURE INSPIRE EACH OTHER
The Lodi Valley Chapter of the Ice Age Trail Alliance hosts Art on the Trail in Lodi, Wisconsin, from May 4-31, 2018.
Art, poetry, musings, and music will greet hikers and saunters as our landscape greens and starts to bloom. We welcome artists, writers, and musicians from Lodi and surrounding areas. Throughout the month of May, take a walk along the various Lodi segments of the Ice Age Trail during
one of eight scheduled hikes, or anytime on your own, to view the art.
Events (see more below) take place all month as viewing of artwork and writings continues through May, as Mother Nature allows.
