You can visit our permanent art collection online at this web page, along with links to learn more about the artists and the art forms and to find art projects that will allow you to create your own art in the spirit of these amazing artists.


North Gallery Upcoming

June 9, 2024 David Heberlein, Human/Nature: Photographs from Western National Parks & Monuments

Human/Nature: Photographs from Western National Parks & Monuments is a collection of black and white photographs made between 1992 and 2019 in western national parks and monuments. The National Park Service was established by Congress in 1916. Their original mission statement included the protection of wilderness areas, while simultaneously allowing public access for their enjoyment. Photographically, I was interested in this conflict between preservation and development.

The pictures allude to a human presence in our national parks and monuments, and to the temporary and permanent marks we make on the land. These public places serve each of us for unique, personal reasons. We come in numerous shapes and sizes with different motivations and commitments of time, performing a variety of recreational, contemplative, and sightseeing activities, some familiar and others new.

Opening reception: Tuesday, June 11, 5:30-7:30pm
