On the Edge: Environmental Art for a Changing Planet

  • Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education 8480 Hagys Mill Rd Philadelphia, PA, 19128 United States (map)

The Fourth Annual Richard L. James Lecture will be presented by artist, and PPEH partner, Mary Mattingly. Mary's WetLand is a key project PPEH is working to support and this lecture will not only discuss the meaning of this project but also the wider importance of the new field of environmental art. A panel will discuss Mary's WetLand, environmental art, and the significance of this field on the larger climate change discussion. The panel will be formed by Mary Salvante, the Gallery and Exhibitions Program Director at Rowan University, Maya van Rossum, leader of the Delaware Riverkeeper Network, and our very own Bethany Wiggin, founder and director of the Penn Program in the Environmental Humanities.
