Endangered Species: Artists on the Front Line of Biodiversity

Endangered Species: Artists on the Front Line of Biodiversity

Art Show
Endangered Species highlights 60 artists who celebrate biodiversity's beauty, interpret natural and human-induced extinctions, and focus on endangered species from diverse ecosystems. It includes the work of artists who spotlight the human activities threatening biodiversity alongside art projects that revitalize habitats and reconnect people to the natural world. The exhibition surveys a wide range of approaches and media used by artists spanning the nineteenth through twenty-first centuries. By tracing links between contemporary and earlier artists, it reveals continuity within a rich cultural tradition of engagement with nature conservation. Juxtaposing the history of art and natural science, Endangered Species explores artists’ pivotal role in raising awareness about biodiversity’s importance. Major funding for the exhibition and catalogue has been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts and The Norcliffe Foundation, with additional support from the City of Bellingham, the Whatcom Museum Foundation, the Museum Advocates, Alexandre Gallery, and Heritage Bank.
