Klein's visit is timed with the major Art Museum exhibition, Nature's Nation: American Art and Environment. A book signing and public reception at the Art Museum will follow, during which time the galleries will be open for viewing Nature's Nation.

About Nature's NationThe exhibition gathers more than 100 works of art — from the colonial period to the present — to examine for the first time how American artists have both reflected and shaped environmental understanding, while contributing to the emergence of a modern ecological consciousness. The exhibition is co-curated by Karl Kusserow, the John Wilmerding Curator of American Art at the Princeton University Art Museum, and Alan Braddock, the 2016 PEI Barron Visiting Professor in the Environment and the Humanities and the Ralph H. Wark Associate Professor of Art History and American Studies at the College of William and Mary. Nature's Nation runs through Jan. 6, 2019.
