ART OF THE NATURAL WORLD
This exhibition will explore nature and art through objects in the Godwin-Ternbach Museum collection. Visual depictions of the natural world have been used to capture, advocate for, and build a greater understanding of the relationship between humans and the natural world. This exhibition will include a range of cultures and time periods including Ancient Egyptian sculpture, Pre-Columbian textiles, Dutch landscape paintings, Japanese ukiyo-e prints, James Audubon’s Birds of America, and landscape photography from the 20th and 21st centuries. The exhibition and public programs will encourage discussion on our role in nature, how that relationship has changed and developed, and how we can advocate for our environment now.
