The Nevada Museum of Art houses the Center for Art and the Environment, one of very few working institutions on the planet that devotes itself exclusively ecological art. Landscape Futures opened only a few months ahead of the Center’s epic A + E Conference, which brought not only Manaugh, but eco-art giants like The Harrisons, Chris Jordan and Patricia Johanson. The conference also introduced Manaugh and Nicola Twilley’s new collaborative project with the Center for Art and Environment. The pair will travel the country for a project called “Venue,” in which they will collect interviews, documentation and information about art and place.

Landscape Futures will be on display at the museum until February 2012.
