The Frist Center for the Visual Arts and The Nature Conservancy are collaborating on a panel discussion about the reasons why we preserve landscapes—from the aesthetic to the life-preserving. How does one choose what to protect? What does it take to manage and sustain a landscape or river system? How can industry and the natural environment thrive in harmony?
Inspiring the discussion will be two current exhibits at the Frist Center. Industrial Sublime features Edward Burtynsky's arresting photographs showing the disturbing beauty of humankind's industrial incursions upon the planet. Constable: Oil Sketches from the Victoria & Albert Museum is a selection of works by John Constable (1776-1837), the much beloved English landscape painter.
