Welcome to the Art of the Fox blog!
I’m Joel Sheesley, an artist who is working with The Conservation Foundation to promote awareness of the environmental importance of the Fox River through esthetic appreciation.
For the next year or so I’ll be travelling up and down the Fox painting it in all its moods and seasons. What a river! As it runs through urban and rural settings, through city “river- walks,” past farmers’ fields, and along beautiful palisades, the Fox is full of enchantment. It’s a storied river whose story is getting better and better as more people realize the benefits of restoring its natural ecology. In this blog I’ll be sharing my thoughts about the river, art, and our mutual task of preserving this great resource.
