Hope is the Thing with Feathers: Contemporary Women Nature Artists includes work by five women whose art practice explores the paradoxically powerful and fragile nature of birds and the ecosystems in which they live. With cautionary tales and messages of hope and recovery, the artists reveal intersections between nature and culture, ultimately using their art to advocate for conservation. By incorporating scientific research and data into their art, they hope to inspire in the viewer a deeper understanding of and appreciation for the cultural and environmental importance of birds. The artists featured in Hope is the Thing with Feathers encourage us to consider the ways in which humans leave an indelible impact on the natural world, and the ways in which we are affected by nature in turn.
