Exhibition Opening: A Civic Wilderness
January 27 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
On View: Saturday, January 27 through Sunday, June 16, 2024
A Civic Wilderness invites you to reflect on the intricate relationship between the urban and the natural. Featuring more than forty artworks from the Museum’s collection, this exhibition seeks to capture the poetic juxtaposition of nature’s persistence against the backdrop of human intervention.
Through artists’ eyes, we see the city not as an antagonist to nature but as a canvas for creative integration. Artworks here celebrate the beauty of this coexistence and challenge us to consider our role in preserving and nurturing the delicate balance between the two worlds. Throughout the exhibition, artists variously explore the transformation of pockets of the urban environment into urban oases, offering respite from the ‘concrete jungle,’ emphasize the presence of birds, insects, and other creatures that thrive amidst the hustle and bustle of city life, and demonstrate how the city is a dynamic canvas in its own right.
Explore the profound relationship between nature and the city through the lens of art, revealing how artists have captured, reimagined, and celebrated this dynamic interplay.
As always, admission is FREE!
