Experience Melissa D’Agostino’s 4 day site-specific outdoor textile installation. D’Agostino’s sheer textile installation is designed to transform the historic pavilion of the Fairmount Water Works Museum and integrate with the natural environment, so throughout the day and evening, whether at a distance or up close, viewers will see the one of a kind tapestries blowing with the breeze creating the billowing waves of an URBAN SEA.

On display September 26 – 29, 2016 at the Fairmount Water Works. Be sure to visit our events calendar for daily exhibit hours.
