Mission

The Barry Lopez Foundation for Art & Environment organizes exhibitions by contemporary artists whose work is illuminated by their concern for the natural world. Circulated nationally to museums and public venues free of charge, Barry Lopez Foundation projects promote awareness about climate change and our relationship with the land in a time of environmental crisis.

Vision

Through its exhibitions and programs, the Barry Lopez Foundation for Art & Environment reflects the profound connection to the land and its influence on our collective imagination that informed Barry Lopez’s writing. The Foundation believes that art can help us navigate the complex choices we face about our future and sustain our connection to the natural world.
