Terra inFIRMA: Virtual Exhibition

When: September, 7th, 2020

Where: The Exhibit will be available here on our website for view.

Cost: Free


Terra Infirma is an exhibition of sixty artists presenting works inspired by the urgent need to address global warming and heal our natural environments. Even as we are all stuck at home The Breman is presenting a virtual version of the exhibition on September 7th that you can peruse here.



Events are happening in our world that are causing us to refocus and to turn our skills and attention to confronting a wide range of topics. Environmental action requires a new and serious plan to slow our planet’s destruction. That destruction is happening all over our planet today.

Artists in this exhibition confront a wide range of topics as they remind us that humans rule over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and the animal world living with us on this earth, our planet. The overwhelming need is to empower environmental action, to be agents of change that will slow our planet’s destruction and improve our involvement as the caretakers we were meant to be.

The original exhibition was curated by Dr. Bernard Heller Museum, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, New York. This virtual exhibition is curated by The Breman Museum.
