“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 landscape. GRAM’s ArtPrize 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 frontiers of natural science.

Masterpieces of American Landscape Painting 1820-1950
October 20, 2013 – January 12, 2014This major exhibition from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, is a rare opportunity to see how America’s vast natural beauty and landmarks have inspired some of the nation’s most admired artists, from Winslow Homer to Georgia O’Keeffe. This extraordinary collection of 48 paintings, spanning the Romanticism of the early 1800s to the Modernism of the 1940s, traces how great artists have used landscape imagery to celebrate the beauty of nature and capture its essential role in the American experience.
