Buttonwood Art Space is proud to host the 10th Annual Visions of the Flint Hills Benefit and Sale to benefit research and preservation of the Flint Hills area of Kansas.  The 8,600 acre Konza Prairie and the surrounding Flint Hills region contain the largest remaining parcels of the Tallgrass Prairie that once cover 140 million acres in North America. In 2008, the Tallgrass Prairie was named one of the eight wonders of the State of Kasnas.
