Drawing on both indigenous and scientific knowledge, botanist Robin Wall Kimmerer, author of Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teaching of Plants, talks about the importance of cultivating a reciprocal relationship with the environment, and how understanding our connection to the land helps us connect more deeply with one another.

After this talk, enjoy a self-guided tour through Mia’s collection looking at the relationship between artists and nature, and consider how art can connect us to our shared humanity. Click here to view the self-guided tour.
