Forest Art Works: contemporary art in the nation's forests
Woodlands and forests are vital places for artists to engage with, to make and present new work. Since 1968 the nation’s forests have played host to a wide range of artworks and art forms.
Contemporary arts in our forests include installations, trails, exhibitions, live performances and more from the artists of today. Come and discover, engage with and enjoy our inspiring artworks. Find out more about the pieces in our forests below.
