Is Landscape Still Relevant in 21st Century Art?: A Discussion with Jim Ballinger, Peter Hassrick and Frances Ashforth

Immediately following the Opening Celebration, join two esteemed museum directors and Mirage exhibition artist Frances Ashforth in a discussion that will explore why landscape remains an important subject for artists in 21st century America.  At this moment, when some critics declare painting dead and many contemporary artists work in non-traditional media, why does artwork that responds to landscape continue to resonate? How does the trajectory of landscape art mirror the time in which it is made?
