Eyes on the Land

Connecting with Vermont's landscapes, farms, and forests through art.

Seeing the Land in a New Way

Artists Discuss Their Work for Eyes on the Land

Emerald Ash Borer

by Lori Duff

This year 13 artists set out to capture the landscapes conserved by VLT. Their visual essays are part of Eyes on the Land, a partnership between the Vermont Land Trust, Shelburne Museum, the artists, and owners of conserved land.

Each artist was paired with a conserved property; collectively, the properties represent the breadth of VLT’s work. They spent a year exploring their response to the land. “We did not tell the artists what to create, so there is an element of surprise,” says VLT’s Elise Annes. “Through art we can engage community members and convey how important it is to protect this landscape into the future.” Read more.
