Cultivating the Wild: William Bartram's Travels
Documentary film. Free streaming courtesy of South Carolina Public Broadcasting (
Philip is featured from minutes 3:27 to 9:37. Aired Nov 12, 2020 on SCETV then nationally on public broadcasting stations.

"Often called “the South’s Thoreau,” Bartram’s reverence for all aspects of nature lies at the heart of modern environmental movements and in the people we meet in this documentary."

It's an honor to be featured painting at Moody Forest, on the Broad River, and in my studio in this beautiful documentary tribute to some of my favorite people and places in the world (and William Bartram of course). - PJ


Picturing the Prairie, Paintings by Philip Juras, Chicago Botanic Garden, Glencoe, IL
May 1 - September 12, 2021

Philip Juras’s exhibit of landscape paintings celebrates the rich aesthetics, ecology, and history of Illinois tallgrass prairies. Over a five-year period, guided by some of the foremost prairie conservationists in Illinois and by his own research, Juras traveled from his home in Georgia to the Chicago area and beyond to discover—and rediscover—a vision of an ecosystem that has virtually vanished in North America. Fifteen larger sized studio canvases and many smaller field paintings depicting remnants, restorations, and imagined re-creations take the viewer on a journey of prairie landscapes from the Wisconsin border to the southern end of the state.

Schedule of gallery talks and related events TBD.
