How-To: Nature Tiered Structures

What does home mean to you: is it only four walls and a roof, or is it something more?

Our new exhibition Home Sweet Home: Is a Home a Sanctuary? explores the idea of nature as sanctuary. From Emilie Clark‘s research station filled with flora and fauna sourced from her Upstate New York home, to Letha Wilson‘s sculptural paintings of the American West, the works on view expand upon the idea of home to include the natural world surrounding us.

Follow along with the How-To video to create your own nature-inspired structure, or visit the museum during public hours to participate in workshops inspired by the exhibition!
