Plants are the foundation on which most visible life on the planet exists. They are under stress, with diminishing natural environments and the very real possibility that many plants may become extinct even before humans are aware of their existence. This exhibition will explore the nature of plants and how humans interact with them, from the forest to the home.
Artists in this exhibition: Thea Clark, John Edmark, Dana Fritz, Jim Jacobs, Ming-Jer Kuo, Jessica Lagunas, Sam Metcalf, Lina Puerta, Lindsay M. Robbins, Martina Shenal, Linda Stillman, Adam Swart, Yeon Ji Yoo, Rachel Yurkovich.
