Cross Pollination: An Art and the Environment Tour

Join UMMA Assistant Curator of Photography Jennifer Friess and Education Outreach Program Coordinator Grace VanderVliet for a tour connecting environmental themes shared across three exhibitions on view at UMMA this summer: The World to Come: Art in the Age of the Anthropocene, The Power Family Program for Inuit Art: Tillirnanngittuq​, and​ Jason DeMarte: Garden of Artificial Delights. In each exhibition, artists from across the globe deeply engage with their environments and the effects of human activity on the landscape. Friess and VanderVliet will tour each exhibition, drawing connections between a diverse range of artistic practices.
