Art Lab

Explore our community-engaged ecological art, including exhibitions, forums, workshops, and artist-led interventions, all aimed at catalyzing sustainable thinking and action for social and ecological well-being.

EXHIBITIONS

City as Nature produces both individual exhibitions and collaborations that explore new ways of knowing our cities through art, culture, and environmental landscapes, uncovering moments and places where humans and our cities are intertwined with nature. Our work helps cultivate more equitable relationships between ourselves, our cities, our industries, and the environment.
