Featured Artist: Mike Major Mike Major, local sculptor, grew up on a farm in Miami County not to far from Brukner Nature Center. He returned to Ohio after graduate work as Ohio's first Artist in Residence for the Ohio Arts Council and National Endowment for the Arts and has enjoyed reconnecting to his home county through several recent sculpture projects. This year, Mike was honored with the task of creating a life-sized statue of Mr. Clayton Brukner which will be unveiled the night of the event and says this monument of Clayton Brukner is high on his list of favorite projects. "Mr. Brukner was a generous and inspiring man, setting an example for all of us through this wonderful legacy, Brukner Nature Center."
Please contact for ticket information, to sponsor the event, or to donate an auction item. All proceeds support our wildlife programs.
