Created by Memphis-born and Mississippi-based artist Angi Cooper, Between Us and The Sun: Beautiful Beings Be is an exploration of mother nature and the similarities between human beings and wildlife. With an emphasis in design, Cooper builds her compositions by weaving science, symbolism, allegory, humor, or social commentary into the artform. She seeks to spark consciousness and mindfulness of our natural environment and inspire visitors to create better practices to sustain it.
