Harvard Conservation Trust
& Fivesparks announce

Destination: Nature 2022

A juried art show featuring art inspired by 4,000 acres of protected lands in Harvard, Massachusetts

To commemorate 50 years of preserving the town of Harvard’s unique character and natural resources, the Harvard Conservation Trust is partnering with Fivesparks to celebrate art and nature with a juried art show.  This partnership will highlight the beauty of the Harvard lands and trails through the eyes of regional artists, while bringing awareness of both organizations’ efforts in the Town of Harvard.

Thanks to the many talented artists who have submitted their pieces!

Destination:NATURE will also feature an immersive video installation created by Bearwalk Cinema. Filmed in Harvard over the course of 2.5 years, Bearwalk’s short observational film encapsulates the experience of protected natural lands, observed unobtrusively. The installation is a reminder to take foot and enjoy the trails as well as evidence of the powerful relationship between nature and art.

Exhibit Dates: November 1 – December 17, 2022

Sarah Montross, Senior Curator at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum will jury the exhibit, and winners will be announced at a November 5 reception where prizes will be awarded.
