Adventure Pass to International Crane Foundation @ International Crane Foundation
Jul 30 – Oct 31 all-day

We are delighted to be partnering with the Baraboo Public Library this summer to create an Adventure Pass program, to offer surrounding communities an opportunity to learn more about the services provided by the library and visit the world’s 15 species of cranes for FREE.

The Adventure Pass program allows patrons of the South Central Library System to check out a pass through the Baraboo Public Library and receive free admission to our headquarters. The Adventure Pass program is available from July 30 through Oct. 31, 2018. Ten passes are available, and library patrons may check out an Adventure Pass for one week. The pass allows admission for 2 adults and up to 4 children, ages 6 through 17.

Learn more about the Adventure Pass program.

The Adventure Pass program is supported in part by a grant from the Sauk County UW-Extension, Arts and Culture Committee and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Cranes and Culture Art Series @ International Crane Foundation
Aug 11 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm

The International Crane Foundation is hosting a new Cranes and Culture Art Series throughout the 2018 visitor season.

Each month local artists will present a complimentary workshop to showcase their work – everything from photography to painting and dance. Participants will learn the cultural relevance of the art and how it relates to cranes and wetland conservation. After each artist presentation, participants can meet the artists, ask questions and most importantly, make their own art with the artists!

The Cranes and Culture Art Series will highlight the work of eight gifted artists in the community:

•  April 21 Woodworker Brian Wilbrandt of Cazenovia and Fiber Artist Sharon Nicholas of Dodgeville, Wis.

•  May 5 – Photographer Stan Tekiela of Minneapolis, Minn.

•  June 16 – Illustrator Kim Russell of Spring Green, Wis.

•  July 8 – Ho-Chunk Experience – Wasira Native Dance Show of Baraboo, Wis.

•  Aug. 11 – Painter Janet Flynn of Reedsburg, Wis.

•  Sept. 15 – Graphic Designer Amie Van Susteren of Lone Rock, Wis.

•  Oct. 6 – Painter Ellen McGaughey of Wisconsin Dells, Wis.

This project is funded in part, by Jodi K. Kingdon and Henry S. Kingdon, M.D., Ph.D. and a grant from the Sauk County UW Extension, Arts & Culture Committee and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.
