Hours:  Monday – Saturday, 9am – 5pm

Out of Bounds will be installed in a variety of settings around SCEE’s main building: in the large pond that greets visitors at the front of the building; in the Center’s new sensory garden; and in the wooded picnic grove that lead to the forest behind the building.  Many of the works recreate and reimagine forms typically seen outdoors, such as Susan Benarcik’s knotted droplets, Ana Hernandez’s bright red fabric fungi, and Scott Pellnat’s giant boat.  Others interact with the natural elements, giving the viewer a new perspective on familiar landscapes.  Mami Kato’s work floats on the pond, kept company by a community of frogs, snakes and turtles.  Caleb Nussear’s installation plays with mirrors amongst the trees, layering the visual experience of the woods. The one indoor installation in the exhibition, Darla Jackson’s “Birthday Party,” enlivens the Center’s foyer with sculptural animals, welcoming visitors and marking the 25th anniversary celebration of the Schuylkill Center’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic, which treats and rehabilitates thousands of animals each year.
