ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION THROUGH ART & EDUCATION
------------------------------------------------------

Environmental Art is not just an art movement; it is
a social movement.  Throughout every era of human
existence, creative expression is how we have turned
our concepts and beliefs into action.  It is with
great pleasure that the Natural World Museum invites
you to participate in the world's first museum-quality
exhibition exploring the concept of environmental art.

Anima Mundi ~ Soul of the World, is a journey through
6,000 years of art in 12 unique installations,from
ancient and indigenous objects to multimedia visions.
Featuring a special collection of nature paintings by
Robert Bateman, renowned wildlife artist and avid
naturalist, and a bio-acoustic sound installation by
the legendary Bernie Krause.  Enjoy hands-on
experiences through evocative educational contexts
about conservation and sustainability.
