CURRENT PROJECTS

Al-Mudhif – A Confluence
25 June – 31 October 2021

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.

Aqua Marooned!

Launching October 9, 2021

In collaboration with the performing arts collective Swim Pony, the Schuylkill Center will offer Aqua Marooned!, a unique and interactive card game to be played on site. Stroll along our trails while quizzing each other on local plants and animals, composing poems about spaces you encounter, honoring the Lenape peoples who have traditionally stewarded the land—all the while deepening your connection to the natural world around you.
