As humans we are interdependent and intertwined with nature. Our shared home on Planet Earth is not simply a backdrop for our existence, but the fabric of our existence itself. This concept is interwoven into the work of the five artists that comprise ACA’s newest exhibit, Integrated Cycles: Artists Respond to Our Changing Earth, curated by Emily Belz. The artists— Richard Alan Cohen, Cedric Harper, Shelby Meyerhoff, Ponnapa Prakkamakul, and Stefanie Timmermann—invite viewers to consider topics ranging from climate change, to our interconnectedness to animal species, to how we form more purposeful relationships to landscapes and space. Part reverie, part warning, and part call to action, the artists and artworks in this exhibit summon the richness and diversity of our Planet and the role each of us plays in shaping its future.



Exhibiting artists Shelby Meyerhoff, Ponnapa Prakkamakul, and Stefanie Timmermann are guest-teaching workshops to share their practice and spark creativity in furthering the discussion of stewardship and coexistence with our planet for all generations.
