This Land

COMING SOON: January 5 – July 24, 2022
American Engagement with the Natural World



This Land: American Engagement with the Natural World explores artistic responses to the natural world by diverse American artists working from the early nineteenth century to the present. It is the first major installation of the museum's historic American collection to be organized thematically, rather than chronologically. More significantly, it features not only Euro-American, African American, Latin American, and Asian American works but also, for the first time, traditional and contemporary Native American works hung alongside this early to contemporary "American" art. This collaboratively curated exhibition of approximately 160 works fills four galleries 

This exhibition is organized by the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, and was generously supported by a gift from Claire Foerster and Daniel Bernstein, Class of 1987.
