River Rooms Walking Tour with Stacy Levy and Joel Fry (2018)

October 16, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The simple act of observing the natural world is an essential step to understanding nature. Art can create ways to entice people to spend time with nature and allow the understanding to take root. The River Rooms create a special space in nature for observation. Tour the installations with the artist and learn about the unique history of the Lower Schuylkill. This event is FREE and open to the public! This is part of our Art@Bartram series. Art@Bartram’s is a multi-year collaborative initiative between Bartram’s Garden and Mural Arts Philadelphia, supported by the William Penn Foundation, that celebrates the Schuylkill River trail and its surrounding landscape, and promotes environmental stewardship. Visit muralarts.org/artatbartrams for the full Art@Bartram’s event calendar and to learn more about the project, or get mobile alerts for all events by texting “TideRooms” to 797979.
