When I first read about this campaign, I was intrigued by the focus on the art as means to inspire change. It reminded me of the days of environmental science class when we were learning about the Hudson River School, a school for landscape painters. The importance of this particular school lied in the fact that it was the first time we saw value in nature through beauty and artistic expression. The Hudson River painters saw art as an agent for change, and this sparked a very unique reason for conservation. I remember loving the connection between art and conservation that these landscape paintings inspired.
