Nature the Ultimate Inspiration for Art and Healing.
In the presence of distinguished art and nature, we experience inspiration, wonder, and hope; it can spark our imagination, creativity, and forge new ways of thinking. Art and nature have always been correlated and connected since the beginning of human existence.
Fortuitously as the Snowy Valleys Sculpture Trail was being developed, the Snowy Valleys Nature Wellness Drive was also established, building connections to the nature and landscapes that inspired the development of the Sculpture trail.
It is now understood that nature is a basic psychological need and an essential pillar to health. Combine a Nature Wellness trail with inspiring sculptures and you are bound to end your stay in the Snowy Valleys inspired, restored, invigorated and rejuvenated. Nature Wellness Drive A community vision to build a restorative connection with nature!
