Event Description

Environmental art, by its nature, explores the far edge of both art and the environmental movement.  As climate change becomes a part of daily reality, environmental art is evolving to respond.  Artist Mary Mattingly presents the James Lecture on the emerging edge of environmental art.  Mattingly’s WetLandinstallation at the 2014 Fringe Festival made headlines presenting a boat-based ecosystem offering a look at the future of climate change and adaptable cities.  An interdisciplinary panel will reflect on this work in the context of the history of environmental art, its current state, and what the future of the genre (and our world) may look like.  In 2015, we’re also celebrating the 15th anniversary of our pioneering environmental art program.

Stay after the lecture for a reception celebrating art at the Schuylkill Center and the opening of the newest show in our gallery, Inhabiting the Edge.

Throughout 2015, the Schuylkill Center celebrates 50 years of connecting people and nature with a series of signature events, a time capsule, and chances for our community to join in marking this important milestone.  This winter, celebrations begin with the Dick James Lecture and Creature Comfort.
