    $5.00 per session

    The enormous changes in the landscape around us have not only been reflected in art, but have been influenced by art.  What has historic landscape painting got to do with environmental transformation? Join us for this series of 2 illustrated talks where we examine the collision of history, art and the land we live in.

    Session 1:

    Discover how the landscape of the West Coast has been represented and misrepresented in pictures since the end of the last ice age until today. We will examine a variety of geological and archaeological sources, early landscape images created at the time of first European contact, and examples in Modern and contemporary art.
