David Brower Center | 2150 Allston Way, Berkeley, CA 94704
The exhibition and new book illuminates beauty
as a powerful catalyst for environmental advocacy
The David Brower Center is pleased to present its ninth annual Art/Act Award and Exhibition, Douglas R. Tompkins: On Beauty honoring the life and work of the prolific conservationist Douglas R. Tompkins. The exhibition examines beauty—as a polestar, an objective and motivation that guided Tompkins’ exceptional life and work. This perspective positions beauty as a powerful catalyst that inspires action, both large and small, from environmental advocacy to simply awakening a more personal connectedness to all of life. The body of work showcase large-scale images by landscape photographer Antonio Vizcaíno, a long time collaborator of Tompkins, as well as additional images from fellow photographers and family photos. The exhibition is accompanied by the release of a new book produced by the David Brower Center in coordination with Tompkins’ former collaborators Tom Butler and Kevin Cross. The exhibition is on view September 24, 2017 – February 21, 2018 with an opening reception on Sunday, September 24 from 5 – 7pm.Visit Event Website >>
