Spring 2022 Billboards: The Mountains to Sea Tale, Claire Alexandre represents the three major local ecosystems of North Carolina—the Blue Ridge Mountains, Piedmont, and Atlantic coastal plain. Through her exploration of the physical and cultural North Carolinian landscape, Alexandre conveys a sense of sacredness to our relationship with the wild and how natural environments are never and have never been devoid of human touch or impact.
