The AFC annual exhibit is the world’s top conservation-themed art experience, featuring all original artwork by members of Artists for Conservation. The exhibit is a vehicle for engaging environmental education programs. Each year, a portion of the exhibit is available to travel to a few cultural and scientific institutions.
Most artwork on tour is available for sale. Artists will donate a portion of proceeds to a conservation organization of their choice. A commission is available to tour venues willing to support and handle artwork sales/transactions. All artwork in the exhibit is original and by members of Artists for Conservation.
