Examining an Agricultural Nation’s Nature

December 6, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

NOFA-NJ is a part of the Being Human Festival, an international festival of outreach in the humanities. As a part of the festival, NOFA-NJ is partnering with Princeton University to host a special tour of the Princeton University Art Museum’s exhibit Nature’s Nation: American Art and the Environment. Agriculture has long animated settlement and expansion efforts and had a profound effect on our national landscape. The tour will look closely at the role of agriculture depicted in the exhibit and facilitate conversations about agriculture, the environment, and art. We hope you’ll join us for a remarkable evening.

Tours will be offered with start times at 5:00 pm and 5:30 pm. Please register for time slot you prefer. Guests are welcome to explore the exhibit before and after the tour as well.
