This special exhibition centered on artists’ observations of our regions, Watershed is
directed by Karen Young for the Fairmount Water Works and curated by Thom Duffy.
Visitors will wander through this fine art exhibition of drawings, paintings,
photographs by Philadelphia artists. The selection of antique and contemporary art
will capture our rivers, streams, wildlife, and tidal wetlands. The purpose of the
exhibition is to allow visitors to explore our watershed and discuss the intricacies and
nuances of balancing an ecosystem in an urban setting. How do the activities in our daily lives impact our watershed? As we view this exhibition, we are reminded that we are a crucial component of our habitat, challenging it’s sustainability.
