Breaking Prairie: Sculpture and Installation by Andrea Thompson

End Date: 9/15/2016
Event Description:
Artist Talk and Reception: Thursday, September 15, 5:00 P.M.
Exhibit on view: September 15–October 20
How do we value the land? In the early 20th century, vast areas of prairie grasslands in the American Great Plains were converted to farmland, forever altering the landscape. The bushels-per-acre accounting of agriculture came at the cost of native plant species, which are superior at capturing carbon, preventing erosion, and supporting a thriving ecosystem. The hubris of westward expansion becomes evident when contrasted with scenes from the day-to-day reality of farming life. Sculptor and installation artist Andrea Thompson explores these themes in Breaking Prairie, a new artwork series that questions how we measure the worth of wild and cultivated landscapes.
