Art and Nature

Interdisciplinary explorations of the intersections between art and nature.

Experience nature through a creative lens by exploring plants, paintings, books, glassworks, and more. Use artistic principles to analyze the natural world, and explore artworks inspired by nature.

Interrogate landscapes in paintings, video artwork, creative writing, and gardens. Analyze the social, political, environmental, aesthetic, and narrative ideas expressed in these works.

Explore art that has been specifically created to deepen understandings of the human body, the natural world, and the visible universe. Explore artworks in the fields of medicine, natural history, and astronomy from The Huntington’s History of Science collection.
