Regeneration: The Nature of Transformation brings together the work of artists and designers who explore concepts of reclamation and renewal. See how their individual acts of transformation connect artwork and designed objects with the Brushwood Center's architecture, grounds, and natural surroundings.

In 1942, the builders of Brushwood (today’s Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods) constructed the Ryerson Family’s summer home using materials salvaged from demolished buildings. Through this purposeful act of reuse, the builders transformed discarded materials—bricks, floorboards, windows, mantels, and stoves—into something new, a process that reflects reclamation and renewal in nature. This exhibition brings together 13 artists and designers who explore the concept of regeneration in their work. See how their individual acts of transformation connect artwork and designed objects with Brushwood’s architecture, grounds, and natural surroundings.
