Landscape has been an ever-present source of artistic inspiration for centuries. Artists often depict their surroundings not just as they are but as representations of identity, power, or markers of time. As diverse as the land itself, our histories and cultures are deeply shaped by a sense of place. 

Over its 45 years, The Fabric Workshop and Museum has worked with several artists who have turned to landscape as the subject of their collaborative projects. Drawn from the museum’s collection, these works employ landscape—urban and bucolic, representational and abstract—to examine its complexities, challenge our assumptions, and perhaps expand our own understanding of how we relate to the world around us.
