About this Event
Dominion Over the Earth is an online exhibition featuring a selection of artworks from the Kruizenga Art Museum collection that explore changing attitudes toward the natural environment in Europe and America from the 18th century to the present. The exhibition was organized by the KAM in conjunction with the Hope College 2020 NEA Big Read Lakeshore program. The 2020 Big Read book, Nathaniel Philbrick’s In the Heart of the Sea, recounts the story of the crew of an early 19th-century American ship that sank in the middle of the Pacific Ocean while hunting whales. The exhibition may be viewed on the KAM website: https://hope.edu/arts/kam/exhibitions/index.html.
