This innaugural exhibition was created by the New Canaan Land Trust, in partnership with the Carriage Barn Art Center to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.
The selected works represent a diverse selection of sculptures and artists. Each was evaluated by its ability to respond to the geography of the individual properties while meeting the criteria of being visually engaging, interactive, and reflective of the relationship between art and nature.
The mediums of the art are varied — including a series of steel frames holding acrylic sheets, welded steel, wood, rocks, and even a fallen, “upcycled” tree. Artists throughout the New York metro area, New England, and as far as Illinois are represented.
