Shelburne Museum is thrilled to present In Their Element: Jonathan D. Ebinger, Rodrigo Nava, Dan Snow, an outdoor installation featuring the evocative work of three contemporary artists on view across the museum’s expansive campus. These captivating sculptures complement and amplify one another through their shared engagement with fire, wind, and earth; subjects of fascination since antiquity. Exploring themes ranging from the anatomy of wildlife to the buoyancy of inflated steel forms, and the relationship between site-specific stone structures within the natural environment, Ebinger, Nava, and Snow push the boundaries of their respective materials and processes, revealing new experimentation with these classical elements.
