Dente Butterflies

Detente: Artworks by Christopher Marley

A Dialogue with Art, Nature and Science

September 24, 2020 – January 10, 2021

Opening: Thursday, September 24, 5-7pm

Artist, naturalist, and New York Times bestselling author Christopher Marley is known for his unique ability to reveal the obscure beauty in nature. In his latest exhibit, the very definition of Detente, "the relaxing of tensions between hostile groups" is experienced visually in real-time. Rich with symbolism, Marley's Detente is an immersive experience where seemingly disparate and opposing elements of the natural world call us to reconsider all that divides us. By revealing the essential components of tension and dichotomy in beauty, Marley inspires us to see even our heartfelt differences as indispensable to a society that is rich, dynamic, and even ideal.
