Boise Art Museum, Art & Environment Exhibit
This exhibition focuses on how a group of Northwest artists are currently responding to the heightened awareness of global issues and specific environmental concerns in the Northwest region. Through their artwork these artists are reacting to eight specific environmental issues which have been identified by top environmentalists as primary concerns:
growth management, waste management-land and sea, mass production/consumption, transportation, preservation of wilderness and wetlands, biodiversity, climate change and energy.

Environmental Art has the power to change the way we view our world.
Some artists showcase the innate beauty in nature.
