About Us

This online museum emerged from our own experiences making environmental art and from seeing firsthand some of the challenges facing artists, community groups, nonprofit organizations and arts institutions when it came to presenting and discussing environmental art.

More than a museum, we see as a giant collaborative art-making tool. We hope you find it useful, friendly and easy to navigate. If you have any information you'd like us to know about or publish please let us know. Thank you!
