Art that Matters to the Planet 2022 Exhibition Opening Celebration


Join us for the opening of the Art that Matters to the Planet 2022 exhibition.

Art that Matters to the Planet isn’t your typical exhibition. We invited each selected artist to collaborate on how best to describe their artistic process. These artists are exhibiting finished works, preparatory drawings, and field sketches. Accompanying narratives, photographs and videos are important for some, not so much for others. Whatever it takes to help you, the audience, understand how and why each artist uses art to illuminate the beauty of nature, challenge us to confront environmental issues of regional, national or global concern; and inspire us to preserve the earth’s biodiversity.

In other words, in a world of exceptional natural beauty and overwhelming environmental challenges, these artists are making a strong case that art not only matters, it is essential for creating a better world.

We hope to have some of the artists here for the opening and will update this page as we confirm those details. Live music, light hors d’oeuvres, and a cash bar.

This event is free for RTPI museum members. Regular admission prices apply for non-members.
