EXHIBITION OPENING CELEBRATION & GALLERY WALK: Untrammeled
At Wilderness’ Edge
Friday, August 6, 2021 - 5:00 PM
Join us for refreshments as we celebrate the opening of Untrammeled. Artist Laura McPhee will be present.
Featuring artwork by four nationally known artists including two new commissioned projects, Untrammeled considers the way our understanding of the idea of wilderness has evolved since the 1964 Wilderness Act. Working in photography, painting, installation and sculpture, Mark Klett, James Lavadour, Laura McPhee and Marie Watt respond to different aspects of the human relationship to the wild, including the human-wildland interface, wildlife, wildfire, and the human experience of wilderness. Can we continue to protect wilderness while still enjoying it as a resource that is both recreational and spiritual?
Major support for Untrammeled comes from The Robert Lehman Foundation with additional support from Jane P. Watkins and Jennifer Wilson.
Laura McPhee's installation was made possible in part through a grant form the Idaho Commission on the Arts.
Sun Valley Museum of Art acknowledges the Shoshone and Bannock peoples and their homelands here in the Wood River Valley, as well as their use of these lands in past, present and future.
