On Beauty honors the life and work of businessman and conservationist Doug Tompkins. This photography exhibit considers how the pursuit of beauty became a central, animating force in Doug’s intellectual development and informed his entire worldview. The exhibition, which premiered at the David Brower Center, explore several key themes: how the diversity of life emerges from beauty; how beauty and ecological health are intrinsically linked; and how Doug’s personal narrative intersects with conservation history.

The exhibit has three elements:
This labyrinth was built by the VCAF Summer Camp participants from used mop-up fire hoses donated by the US Forest Service. The baskets with fire spirits were built from materials gathered in the Tahoe-Truckee National Forest, Sagehen Creek Field Station, near Truckee, California. The fire spirits were created by the children and their teacher, Sophia Othman . This display will also be shown at the Visions of the Wild Festival in downtown Vallejo from September 12 – 15, 2019. After the festival, it will go back to Sagehen as part of a fire art controlled burn ritual called the Culture of Fire sometime in the Fall.
