Thomas Cole, founder of the Hudson River School, was an iconic 19th-century artist and a conservational visionary whose ideas on the natural world heralded the sense of American identity that we know today. Wild Land: Thomas Cole and the Birth of American Landscape Painting, takes visitors “into the woods” and through Cole’s studio, revealing the ways in which he, and other artists of his time, pioneered cultural conversations that shaped our national landscape—intellectually, physically, and visually.

From an itinerant portrait artist to the founder of the Hudson River School, how did this landscape artist transform sketches from nature into a new vision of the wilderness? The exhibition also examines how the meaning of nature has changed over time into a source for creative and intellectual inspiration. And just as Cole did, visitors are invited to explore the concept of preservation and how societies come to value and live in balance with natural resources.

Through a combination of large-scale banner graphics, immersive environments, media features, and other interactive elements, Wild Land takes audiences on a journey with Cole through the story of his creative process.

This exhibition has been made possible through NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities.  It has been adapted and is being toured by Mid-America Arts Alliance.  Wild Land: Thomas Cole and the Birth of American Landscape Painting was organized by The Thomas Cole National Historic Site/Cedar Grove, Catskill, New York.
