This year’s Green Living Expo was inspired by our current exhibit, Home Lands: How Women Made the West. From ancient pueblos to modern suburbs, women have shaped the Western landscape through choices about how to sustain home, family, and community. Home Lands: How Women Made the West brings together women’s history, Western history, and environmental history to show how women have been at the heart of the Western enterprise across cultures and over time. Historical artifacts, art, photographs, and biographies of individual women will lead visitors through four distinctive Western environments created and inhabited by women.
