The large-scale photographs, behind-the-scenes footage, and informative text in this exhibition tell stories of environmental conservation from around the world. Grubb takes a multidisciplinary approach to his artmaking process by combining science, documentary filmmaking, and visual art in an effort to inform communities and protect different species in their natural habitats. The bold photographs featured in this exhibition also highlight the human caretakers and conservation biologists working to protect endangered animals.

Also joining this exhibition is Beyond the Lawn, a pop-up exhibit developed from Grubb’s findings when he examined the biodiversity between lawn and wildflower habitats in St. Louis, Missouri. Photographs of these familiar plant and wildlife species will help you examine the biome of your own backyard.
