Arts at the Palace is pleased to announce its new arts and ecology initiative. This program will explore relationships between the arts, culture, and the natural world through collaborations with artists, designers, environmentalists and ecologists, and community members. We’re interested in developing projects that focus on interconnectedness, sustainability, and tapping into our genius loci (spirit of the place).
