An exhibition of works that emphasize the importance of the unseen root in generating the harmonious growth and development of a plant as a metaphor for what may happen in society if communities support or neglect those who have been uprooted. Artist and Educator Dolores Bartholomew, her students, and the Gallagher plant biology laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania have collaborated to create an art installation that explores plant design, architecture and communication.
WIthout Roots is on display at the Esther Klein Gallery August 16 – September 29, 2018.
A closing reception for the show will be held on September 27th from 5 – 7 p.m. Please register.
