Art of Inclusive Environments

The Art of Inclusive Environments will ensure that all who enter Harvard’s buildings have the opportunity to experience the benefits of culturally diverse visual environments. It provides a model for connecting all buildings at Harvard to the living Native Nations who are the original inhabitants of Harvard’s land. By commissioning art from indigenous artists, we support those who sustain the identities, values, and artistic traditions of the groups Harvard’s 1650 Charter commits us to serve.
