“There’s no barrier between what science shows us objectively and what our hearts can feel subjectively. We’re going to do that at Pepperwood with art – we’re going to create experiences not only to know Nature, but to feel it.”

The curator behind Pepperwood’s Art Gallery and Art Initiatives is a man named Ben Benson. Archaeologist, cultural anthropologist, professor, artist, adventurer, exhibit designer, master electrician – these are a handful of Ben´s accomplishments, but they by no means capture the essence of the man. For that, one needs to have a conversation with him. His enthusiasm for art and the natural world, his optimism for humanity, his expertise in Indigenous arts and traditions,and his passion for connecting people with, in his words, the majesty of Nature is enlivening. For his fifteen years of service to Pepperwood, we’re celebrating him and his continued service as our Honoree at our annual Sunset Celebration fundraiser on June 3rd.
