The Long View: From Conservation to Sustainability | Works from the Bank of America Collection traces the history and impact of the environmental movement through art. Beginning in the mid-nineteenth century and continuing to the present, the exhibition examines the evolution of our relationship with—and need to protect—the Earth and its inhabitants, and the artists that have played a role in shaping the environmental conversation.
In 2020, the world celebrated the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. In commemoration of this event, the Art in our Communities® program launched The Long View to reaffirm Bank of America’s dedication to financing low-carbon and sustainable business activities across the globe.
The show comprises 77 photographs, paintings, fine prints and sculpture categorized into four thematic sections. The Beginnings of Conservation features artists from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries whose works influenced the environmental movement. Included are John James Audubon, whose painstaking prints of birds and other wildlife inspired the founding of the Audubon Society, and photographer Carleton Watkins, whose vistas of Yosemite gave rise to the founding of the National Park Service.
