(Click on names for further information)

This exhibit considers the relationship

between the human and the natural worlds. It explores the many ways artists are thinking about, and responding to, nature, from close observation to narrative and metaphor, from work that looks at the threats of climate crisis and mass extinction to art that is personal and intimate. Our goal is to showcase a wide range of ideas, media, and perspectives, serving to evoke the complex and layered connections between us and our world.
