Theme of the Exhibit

What happens when the natural world meets the man-made?

Architecture is often viewed as an intrusion; the “built” world cannot exist without changing and re-shaping the natural one. But this process need not be destructive.

How does architecture complement the natural world?

Like nature, architecture adapts. The “built” world can dominate the natural one, but it can also become a part of it. When the two successfully coexist, the beauty of both can emerge.

What happens when the two worlds merge?

In “Fostering Harmony: the Symbiotic Relationship of Architecture and Nature,” artists were invited to examine these and other themes. Through painting, photography and sculpture the exhibit explores what happens when the built and natural worlds meet.

The Architectural Heritage Center will host “Fostering Harmony: The Symbiotic Relationship of Architecture and Nature” during the 2010 holiday season. The exhibit offers Pacific Northwest artists an opportunity to have their work exposed to the community, offer work for sale to the public, and support the AHC/Bosco-Milligan Foundation’s education programs, advocacy efforts, and collections stewardship. The chosen artwork will be displayed at the AHC for two months, and artists will hold weekly community conversations based around their work and the exhibit’s theme.
