Our Good Earth

June 4, 2016 – August 21, 2016

Charles Munch, Fire Signs, 1989. Oil on canvas, 41 x 53 inches. Museum Purchase Fund.

Drawn from the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art’s permanent collection, Our Good Earth is an exhibition that features a wide range of artworks in many media. The exhibition addresses the varied concerns of modern and contemporary artists for the natural world: from realist landscapes to abstraction, conceptual art to pop art, Our Good Earth illuminates how artists reveal the marvels of nature, express compassion for the fragile beauty of flora and fauna, and caution against threats to the natural world. Audiences will be stimulated to think about social and political issues, climate change, natural disasters, and environmental renewal and restoration—issues made urgent by the changing nature of the planet.
