Mary Mattingly's latest outdoor installation project, WetLand, is now on view along the Delaware River at Columbus Boulevard in Philadelphia. This temporary, sustainable habitat uses solar distillation to purify Philadelphia river water that, with the input of the Philadelphia Water Department and Delaware River Port Authority, is used by Mattingly for the duration of the installation. The project is accompanied by activities such as music events, urban farming seminars, and yoga sessions.
WetLand is supported by FringeArts, the Knight Foundation, the Seaport Museum, DRWC, PWD, Skidmutro, the City of Philadelphia, and others, and open through September 21, 10am-5pm at Independence Seaport Museum Pier, 211 S. Columbus Blvd., at Dock Street. For more information, click here.
