In honor of the 40th anniversary of Bernheim’s Artist in Residence program and the value that art brings to the natural environment, Bernheim invited creatives from Kentucky’s artist and design community to submit image designs honoring the organization’s mission of connecting people with nature. Forty two Kentucky-based artists and designers submitted designs that addressed the unique aspects of Bernheim’s history, geography and wildlife, on-site attractions, nature-based educational programming and art in the landscape.
Congratulations to Alexis (STIX) Brown from Radcliff and Tara (Remi) Remington from Louisville for their winning designs that interpret Bernheim’s mission of connecting people with nature from unique perspectives. T-shirts will be available for purchase when our Gift Shop is able to safely reopen. Stay tuned to bernheim.org and on social media @bernheimforest for updates.

Her latest publication The Purpose Tree, was finalized by the Kentucky Foundation for Women Residency Program in 2017. Currently working in micron pen and digital illustration, STIX’s art vibrate a deep sense of healing and connectivity by manifesting the change she would like to see in the world through her work. Her Bernheim design features her Godson holding the world and the girl hugging the fox projects her desire for young girls of color to be nurtured in the natural world.
