Environmental Impact

Through a variety of approaches and artistic media, the works of art in Environmental Impact address the consequences of human interaction with the natural environment. Frequently the artist becomes an activist --creating works of art meant to bring awareness to environmental concerns and sway public opinion.

The works featured in this exhibition depict how more recent human intrusion into the natural world has resulted in dire environmental concerns. Featured artists - including Daniel Beltrá, Diane Burko, Edward Burtynsky, Janet Culbertson, Alejandro Durán, Steve McPherson, Alexis Rockman, Barbara Roux, and Steve Rowell - believe that we can begin to achieve change through action.

Funding has been provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
