In Of Land and Local’s fifth installment, Burlington City Arts Center further explores the concept of watershed by connecting concentric circles of community ranging from the regional to international perspectives, and contextualizing local water issues within a global environment. Watershed themes will investigate ideas of place, conservation, commodification, and water’s cultural role within community. Select artists from previous Of Land & Local exhibitions will be invited to return and revisit the theme along with new artists from Vermont and the surrounding region.

As an ongoing partnership between the Farm and Burlington City Arts, Of Land & Local combines the missions of both organizations and supports artist led conversations about social, ethical, and political issues impacting the Vermont landscape, culminating in exhibitions at both locations.
