Conservation From Here

Port Angeles Fine Arts Center & Webster's Woods Sculpture Park, Port Angeles, WA - May 8 – Aug 1

by Matthew Kangas

Originally exhibited at Sagamore Hill National Historic Site, Long Island, NY, the home of Theodore Roosevelt, Conservation from Here relocates to Port Angeles near Olympic National Park (ONP), a TDR legacy. Multidisciplinary artist Joseph Rossano reimagines the president’s trophy room. Juxtaposed with these trophies are photographs of fauna indigenous to ONP, their DNA collected by local youth. The multimedia show, says Rossano, “uses the visual, spatial and tactile qualities of art to create awareness about the preservation of the species.”
