The institution's press release follows:

Nature’s Nation: American Art and Environment is a new exhibition that examines American artists’ impact on shaping environmental understanding and stewardship.

Featuring 100 artworks from 70 eminent US collections, Nature’s Nation traces 300 years of evolving ideas about the natural world and our place within it. From colonial beliefs about the divine in nature, to artists' advocacy for national parks, to the emergence of environmental activism, the paintings, photographs, and installations by Thomas Moran, Frank Lloyd Wright, Dorothea Lange, and many more explore our relationship with the environment.

Similar to the mission of Crystal Bridges, Nature’s Nation illuminates the connection between art and nature.

Nature’s Nation: American Art and Environment has been organized by the Princeton University Art Museum. Leadership support has been provided by Shelly and Tony Malkin; Annette Merle-Smith; the Henry Luce Foundation; and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Nature's Nation is organized by the Princeton University Art Museum, traveled to the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA, and will conclude at Crystal Bridges.

Garth Greenan Gallery

Garth Greenan Gallery is committed to mounting important exhibitions and maintaining a high standard of integrity and connoisseurship. It champions the work of established artists whose work deserves greater recognition, many of whom emerged during the 1960s and 1970s. By re-presenting and recontextualizing their work, the gallery questions the prevailing narrative of contemporary art history and encourages its revision.

Currently, Garth Greenan Gallery represents 17 artists of different generations. The gallery handles works in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, drawing, and printmaking. Each year, the gallery presents seven exhibitions, many of which are accompanied by publications.
