This show is the result of a unique collaboration between 21 different artists from around the Pacific Northwest and the U.S. Forest Service. The 21 artists were selected competitively and assigned to one of six different Wilderness Areas on the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, the Mt. Hood National Forest, and the Columbia Gorge Scenic Area. The work in this show is a response to the artists in these public lands. We’re proud to feature this multimedia exhibit at UVAA!
