Humans and Nature in the Collection of the Henry Art Gallery

Humans have always had a complicated relationship with nature. It dwarfs us, enlivens us, inspires and challenges us. We seek to be one with it, yet we also strive to conquer it. It takes an artist to describe it.

Join the Henry’s Associate Curator of Collections Ann Poulson for an interactive online experience where we’ll delve into the museum’s extensive collections, which include painting, photography, and works on paper, and get to examine many works that are rarely on public view.

Whether you have a complicated relationship with nature, or you’re simply missing the great outdoors right now, join us as we discuss a selection of works that portray people interacting with, and intervening in, the natural world.

By donation ($8 suggested)

The Henry Art Gallery is the art museum of the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington.
