The exhibit, curated by Webster adjunct art professor B.j. Vogt, includes the works Cameron Fuller (St. Louis), David Johnson (St. Louis), Jamie Kreher (St. Louis), Karen McCoy (Kansas City), Carin Mincemoyer (Pittsburgh) and Eric Troffkin (Detroit).

For centuries, humans have interpreted their surroundings through the creation of objects and images depicting the marriage of culture with the natural world. Through transformation, integration, ritual, and the creation of new language, we have recontextualized and given meaning to our place in nature. The works chosen for this exhibition highlight contemporary translations of these concepts, filtering the present adaptation with, and of, our environment through the lenses of myth, landscape, science, and architecture.

The exhibition is made possible by financial assistance from the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency, and with support from the Regional Arts Commission.
