Buttonwood Art Space : Preservation

Preserving the Flint Hills Prairie

Many have asked us why a Kansas City, Missouri art gallery would want to support the Flint Hills of Kansas. Why not? We share a connection with the land and ecology of the surrounding region, both in Missouri and in Kansas. Many of our gallery artists live in Kansas and in the Flint Hills area specifically. And you must admit, the Flint Hills region is one of understated, immense beauty. We hope you enjoy the art and the area. Here are a few videos about the Flint Hills.
