Threads & Trails: Contemplations of Our Herstories

October 6, 2023–February 17, 2024

Threads & Trails: Contemplations of Our Herstories is a collaborative exhibition created by five female-identifying artists who connect their personal histories to the conquest of the American West and Indigenous dispossession. Featuring the work of Erica Larsen-Dockray, Cybele Moon, Steph Coley, Eve-Lauryn LaFountain, and Marissa Magdalena Sykes, Threads & Trails is an installation that explores the experiences of women from the past and present in a space that is immersive, enlightening, inclusive, and transformative.

Sarah Kaizar: RARE AIR

January 23–May 4, 2024

This family-friendly art exhibition features original gouache and ink artwork from the book RARE AIR: Endangered Birds, Bats, Butterflies, and Bees. Authored by Philadelphia-based illustrator and designer Sarah Kaizar, and featuring writings by A. Scott Meiser, RARE AIR focuses on diminishing flighted species and citizen science. The exhibition, which shares the book’s stories and research, features striking visuals and interactive elements that connect visitors of all ages to the diversity of our ecosystems and the extraordinary creatures that populate them. Kaizar’s work enables audiences to recognize and appreciate the winged species that share our world and offers strategies—big and small—to slow or reverse the threats that face them.

Sarah Kaizar’s work has been seen in regional galleries and museums including the Woodmere Art Museum, Delaware Contemporary, and the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education. She was a recipient of the 2021 Wind Fellowship by InLiquid and the Dina Wind Foundation and completed a residency at the University of Nebraska’s Cedar Point Biological Station in the summer of 2021. Kaizar is also the author of HIKER TRASH: Notes, Sketches + Other Detritus on the Appalachian Trail, an illustrated work based on her experience hiking 2,200 miles from Georgia to Maine. It was published by Mountaineers Books in 2019.

This exhibition was made possible through the generous support of The Puffin Foundation, the Center for Biological Diversity, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, Wild Birds Unlimited (Buckingham, PA), and the Joseph Robert Foundation.
