Most environmental art exhibits and displays take place in fairly conventional settings: galleries, museums, or coffee shops. Nexus, a Philadelphia-based artist collective, has accepted an invitation from the the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education to use its Brolo Hill Farm site as both studio and exhibition space in order to “consider both the agricultural and cultural conditions that might have existed on the site when the farm was active, and examines the implications of those dynamics in today’s environmental climate.”
