Last Chance to see the Handmade Landscape Exhibition | Fine Art Museum
Closing on August 26th, this exhibition features the artist collective, Camp Little Hope, and explores the geography, botany, and impact of recent human land use on Gribble Gap. The research presented in this exhibition informed the creation of Dirtmaker, an environmental sculpture installed on the WCU trail system near the Health and Human Sciences Building.
