AboutBetween Life and Land: Identity is the second chapter of a three-part exhibition series that explores our relationship with the land. In part two, 15 artists examine the role that identity–our values, practices, histories, and fictions–plays in shaping and re-shaping the environments we call home.
Visiting the Exhibition
Visitors at Kimball Art Center can participate in on-site creative and experiential activities to deepen their relationship with the exhibition. On-site experiences include a prompt to explore the visitor’s perspective of nature through Alfred Bierstadt’s In the Mountains (1867). Using the work of Ann Böttcher and Jerrin Wagstaff as inspiration, visitors can create a collage that represents their values or ideas with provided materials. Also, while exploring the creative responses to mapping displayed in the exhibition, visitors are encouraged to add to a collaborative piece that considers the ideas that we belong to the land or the land belongs to us.
