NEH on the Road: Wild Land

The purpose of bringing the Thomas Cole Exhibition to Ellensburg, Washington, is to help our community understand how our views of environment have been developed through the painters of the Hudson River Valley School. We are centrally located within the state, surrounded by the Cascade Mountains to the west, and within a day's drive to the east, the Rocky Mountains. The Columbia River, with its incredible geological history changed by the historic Missoula Flood is close to us as well. this exhibit emphasizes the early recognition of the importance of environment and the need to respect the land on which we live and to preserve its beauty for generations to come. Through the beautiful paintings of Thomas Cole, we will encourage groups of students of various ages to recognize that as early as 1800, there was a need to promote preservation of our natural resources.
