Oriented around three organizing themes, Sustainability | Social, Environmental, Economic, the exhibition features artworks that relate to the topic of sustainability. Spanning the entire second floor of the museum’s galleries, this exhibition seeks to prompt important conversations about climate change, the socio-cultural significance of topographical sites to different groups of people, the evolving history of landscape and its representation in art, distinct ecosystems, and illustrative biodiversity. This long-term installation is an innovative curatorial endeavor that showcases the strength and diversity of the Mulvane Art Museum’s permanent collection.
