Constructing Crum Creek Meander at Swarthmore

Thursday, September 26, 4:30 pm
Lang Performing Arts Center Cinema
In collaboration with Swarthmore Art Department

This November, installation will begin on a site-specific sculpture by artist Stacy Levy. Evoking the variable flow of water across our landscape, the 300-foot serpentine form of Crum Creek Meander will be illuminated at night and animated by changing wind patterns. Stacy will illustrate in this discussion the scope and inspiration behind the work to come. This exciting landscape art installation has been made possible by the William J. Cooper Foundation. The work will remain on view late Fall 2013 into early 2015.
