Al Mudhif - A Confluence is an outdoor art installation by Sarah Kavage and Yaroub Al-Obaidi and an accompanying exhibition at the Schuylkill Center that explore notions of belonging and healing amidst the current moment of careful reconnection. The installation and gallery display provides a welcoming space for intercultural encounters at the Schuylkill Center that equally offers a critical perspective on global migration of plants and people.

The group - consisting of collective members Esther Baker-Tarpaga, Raquel Monroe, and Heidi Wiren Bartlett in collaboration with guest artists Tchin, Crux, and Emma White Thunder - will explore collective knowledge and systemic practices in environmental justice, anti-racism and healing lineages grounded in the body. 

Friday, Aug 6, 2021 at 6pm at the Schuylkill Center

The collective will present an in-progress performance UNLOCK. We will roam and lead a guided procession centering environmental justice, anti-racism, and healing lineages.

Rob Carter

Citizen's Eye - A Kaleidoscope of Nature
Jan 21 - Mar 21, 2021

The Schuylkill Center presents Citizen's Eye, a communal photo album featuring over 400 images of surprising encounters with nature taken during the pandemic. The exhibition invited the public to share their impressions of and in nature as they are experiencing new ways of connections. The exhibition asks how nature has been a part of our lives and how it has changed our sensibility for the surprising miracles of the natural world in the midst of a pandemic. All submissions are curated into a kaleidoscopic display in our art gallery and online on our website.
