Students Collaborate on Awbury Arboretum Exhibition

March 24, 2017 Jen Retter

In response to ceramic animals sculpted by third grade students at Wissahickon Charter School, Arcadia’s Studio Art Foundations class constructed habitats and homes for “Creature Comforts,” a collaborative art exhibition at Awbury Arboretum.

The project’s opening reception will be held on Saturday, April 1, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the arboretum’s Francis Cope House. Attendees can meet the artists at 1 p.m., attend the Delaware Natural History Museum’s “Animal Engineers” presentation at 3 p.m., and explore two dozen “habitats” through an interactive map and scavenger hunt.

The reception is free and open to the public. “Creature Comforts” will be on display April through June.
