Age of Wonder


Exhibition Overview

Age of Wonder is a unique, original exhibition reflecting a wide range of interests and practices by thirteen contemporary Bay Area artists concerned with the natural world.  It includes poets, thinkers, scientists, archivists and artists creating eco-conscious works that draw attention to the challenges facing the contemporary world in relation to environmental consciousness.
