    Ethan Murrow’s latest installation is a panoramic wall drawing inspired by old-growth forests that once existed on Cape Cod. The primary subject of The Greenhouse is a massive felled oak tree, a cautionary reference to the effects of colonization and development on the Cape’s natural environment. In a testament to nature’s resilience and regeneration, the dead tree plays host to sprouts of new growth. A treehouse, with windows looking out onto a vast green landscape, creates a potential vision of a hopeful future. The installation encourages discussion, and optimism, about how human beings can preserve and restore natural habitats and coexist in balance with nature. Murrow works with a team of artists using high-flow acrylic paint and refillable pens to draw directly onto the gallery walls, and the piece will extend over 75 feet. Museum visitors will have the opportunity to watch the artists at work during the installation in the beginning of June. Additional new graphite drawings by Murrow will also be on view
