Genius Loci: Learning from Nature's Muse
Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods, Deerfield, Illinois
8 July 2012 — 31 August 2012

How can art and design be informed by the natural environment? I curated this group exhibition featuring 12 artists, designers, and architects whose work responds to the specifics of different Chicago ecosystems: grasslands, woodlands, wetlands, and lakeshore.
