Art and the Environment, a six-part Sunday at the Met program, brought together artists and scholars to discuss art's relationship to the environment. In this video, artist Walton Ford discusses how he draws inspiration from nature and history in order to create his unique work, which combines the sensibility of historical natural history illustrations with modern storytelling inspired by adventure and exploration.
