ArtPrize at GRAM

ArtPrize® 2013 at GRAM:
Reimagining the Landscape and the Future of Nature
Artists today have a complex relationship with the environment that goes beyond celebrating the beauty of the landscape. GRAM’s ArtPrize 2013 exhibition will feature artists who are exploring images and ideas taken not only from the world around us, but also from the history of art, contemporary discussions about the environment, and the frontiers of natural science.

This ArtPrize exhibition anticipates GRAM’s forthcoming fall exhibition, Masterpieces of American Landscape Painting 1820-1950, from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
