Douglas R.Tompkins: On Beauty

David Brower Center

Presenting the David Brower Center's 9th Annual Art/Act Award and exhibition honoring art that inspires environmental advocacy and engagement. The exhibition explores several key themes: how the diversity of life emerges from beauty; how beauty and ecological health are intrinsically linked; and how Doug's personal narrative intersects with conservation history, especially at this particular moment in humanity as we face a collapsing biosphere.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Douglas R.Tompkins: On Beauty :

This exhibition and accompanying book honors the work of late land conservationist Douglas R. Tompkins, founder of The North Face, Esprit and the Foundation for Deep Ecology. Beauty shaped Tompkins world view; in March of this year, the Chilean government announced the creation of 11 million acres of national parks, the culmination of his conservation work begun in the late ’90s.
