Bernheim’s Arts in Nature program has contributed to the organization’s mission of connecting people to nature since its founding by Isaac W. Bernheim, whose strong vision was that land would be a place to experience art, nature, and education. Through programs like the 43-year established Artist in Residence and commissioned site-specific large-scale installations, art has continued to elevate Bernheim to a regional, national, and international leader in nature arts programming.
