Eight hundred years ago, the Charter Of The Forest gifted public access to Britain’s woodlands, to be used and enjoyed by all. Marking this anniversary, and celebrating 75 years of the University of Oxford’s Wytham Woods, the exhibition Into The Woodlands at Oxford’s Natural History Museum features woodland-inspired work by Robert Macfarlane and Stanley Donwood in collaboration with permanent resident-artists and creators of the Wytham Woods Studio, Robin Wilson and Rosie Fairfax-Cholmeley.
From 30 November 2017 - 3 June 2018
Wytham Room, First Floor, Oxford University Natural History Museum, Parks Rd, Oxford OX1 3PW
Wytham Woods consist of 1000 acres of ancient woodland, modern plantations and grassland. They, together with the Estate’s farmland have been described as a microcosm of the lowland English countryside. Research conducted at Wytham since the 1920s has contributed to the University of Oxford’s worldwide reputation in the biological and environmental sciences.
Stanley Donwood’s prints from the Into The Woodlands exhibition are available from this website.
