Of Land and Local Art Exhibition

Of Land and Local celebrates its fifth year at the BCA Center & Shelburne Farms. 16 new and returning artists further explore last year’s watershed focus bringing a fresh perspective to this important topic.

The exhibit explores how issues relating to the watershed fit within a domestic and global context. Themes investigate ideas of place, conservation, commodification, and water’s cultural role within our community.
