ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

May 23, 2015 — Aug 08, 2015

Environmental Impact is a traveling exhibition curated by Dr. David J. Wagner. The purpose of the exhibition is to heighten public consciousness through the power of art about the intentional or unintentional consequences of environmental exploitation and neglect. Art of natural history traditionally depicts nature in all its glory in beautiful, pristine condition. The paintings, photographs, and sculptures of Environmental Impact are antithetical to that tradition. Instead, they confront pressing issues of our time, from land development to industrial-scale depletion of natural resources, from the Gulf oil spill to the dangers of nuclear energy, the trashing of the American landscape, and the impact of Global Warming.
