We are a home for the environmental movement.
The David Brower Center provides a home for the environmental movement by advocating for the beauty, diversity and ecological integrity of Earth. The Brower Center accomplishes this mission through a distinctive combination of permanent infrastructure and ongoing programs in a unique institution that

Informs the public about the environmental challenges we face and the bold actions we must take if ours is to remain a living planet;
Inspires people to recognize their own power and responsibility to act on behalf of the Earth; and
Connects individuals and organizations dedicated to social equity and ecological sustainability.
The Brower Center fulfills these commitments through three core programs:

Art and Education, which offers museum-quality exhibitions and public programs that serve to educate audiences about a wide range of environmental issues and foster a more engaged citizenry;
Resident Organizations, through which the Center houses 30+ nonprofits and social enterprises and provides capacity building and networking opportunities; and
a Conference Center, hosting more than 300 events every year for nonprofit and private businesses, and strengthening the green event industry by requiring clients to abide by low-waste, green principles.
Together these programs bring over 50,000 people to the Brower Center each year and draw nonprofit organizations, social entrepreneurs, artists, activists, and the general public to engage in creative dialogue and action.

We are open to the public.
The Brower Center, including the Hazel Wolf Gallery, is open weekdays from 9 am until 5 pm, and Saturdays from 10 am until 2 pm. Admission is free.

The gallery is closed most major holidays, including: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day (Fourth of July), Labor Day, Indigenous Peoples’ Day, Thanksgiving and the Friday following, and Christmas.

Please note that the gallery is occasionally closed for private events.

Linda Bouchard’s works are defined by the importance of color and textures, and the structures of her compositions are intimately linked to the orchestral choices she makes for each composition, be it a solo piece or a composition for full orchestra.

Her compositions are often inspired by nature’s geometry, structure, and textures, as if writing music could begin by staring with a magnifying glass at nature’s elements — water, gas, rock formations, chemical reactions — then from those images creating a series of abstract landscapes.

Born in Québec, Canada, Linda Bouchard has been an active composer, orchestrator, conductor, and producer for over thirty-five years. She has received awards from the Conseil Québecois de la Culture the Canada Council for the Arts, Fleck Fellowship from The Banff Centre, the Princeton Composition Contest, the National Association of Composers a Fromm Music Foundation Award from Harvard University.  More...
