College partners with North Museum of Nature and Science

. . .

Friday, May 11th, 2018

From up in the sky to down below the ground, Pennsylvania College of Art & Design is partnering with the North Museum of Nature and Science to explore the different kinds of habitats and homes around the world.

May 8 – August 31 at the The North Museum of Nature and Science, 400 College Avenue, Lancaster, PA 17603. Hours are Mon – Sat: 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday: 12 noon to 5 pm

Opening Reception First Friday June 1, 5:30 pm

The theme “Habitat” with the key phrase “Home is Where the Heart is” was introduced to all majors at PCA&D where they were encouraged to interpret the prompt in their own individual voices.

Some pieces mirror, in perfect harmony, the spirit of the North Museum’s focus on the outside world, wildlife, and exploration. Concentrating on the habitat that an animal would call home, you will see some of the artists spinning a warm narrative around these inhabitants while celebrating the uniqueness of their environment. Other interpretations boldly expand to the human connection to habitats and our roll in this ever-changing world.

Educational interactivity, preservational undertones, and ecological inquiries are explored encompassing themes such as recycling, interior man made habitats, and the importance of species in our everyday lives.

Below are some of the pieces in the exhibit:
