About the Exhibit:

This show aims to reveal the ways in which we perceive, interpret and retell our experiences of nature. The seven artists use diverse methods: memorials, guidebooks, faux landscapes, fairy tale crime scenes, live video feeds, visual perception tracking, distortion of scale, predictions and invitations.

"The exhibit provides diverse and in depth approaches to telling stories about nature. In exploring myths, facts and observations, these artists create new experiences of nature that are thoughtful, funny and ultimately, reverential, " said Jenny Laden, Director of the Art Department at The Schuylkill Center.
