Human/Nature art show
The opening evening of our art show- Human/Nature, was on Thursday October 10, 6-8pm at the Indiana Interchurch Center Gallery.
Our 2019 art show Human/Nature ran in October and November 2019. The Hoosier Chapter of the Sierra Club would like to thank everyone who participated, artists and visitors alike.
Artists from all over Indiana and beyond exhibited work reflecting on our human relationship with the natural world. We have also produced a chapbook on the same theme.
You can read and hear interviews with some of the artists, here.

Artists were asked to reflect on:
Can spending time in nature help us heal?
Do we have a disconnect with nature, and has this been detrimental to our lives... and our planet?
Where do we go from here?
