Through Your Eyes

Through Your Eyes
June 18 – August 13, 2022

Continuing our tradition of a summer exhibit, Through Your Eyes will be a photography exhibit featuring images submitted by the Erie community, showing their favorite locations, features, plants, animals and activities at Asbury Woods.

Local photographers of all ages have been submitting their images since December to help us show Asbury Woods through the eyes of our visitors. We hope that by showing the multitude of ways the community sees, appreciates, uses, and engages with Asbury Woods we can inspire a continued appreciation for natural places, environmental stewardship, and conservation of public green space. Art has long been used as a way to encourage people to consider new ideas, inspire appreciation, and prompt action. We hope the Through Your Eyes exhibition will provide new insights into how Asbury Woods is valued by individuals in our community and inspire others to consider the importance of protecting such places.

Plus, you can get in on the exhibit action by starting to share your Asbury Woods photos, stories, and experiences on social media using our hashtag #MyAsburyWoods. During the course of the exhibit, we’ll be building a dynamic engagement wall sharing even more views of Asbury Woods Through Your Eyes with your tagged social media posts.

Exhibit Details:

An opening reception will be held Friday, June 17 from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Brown’s Farm Barn, 5774 Sterrettania Road, Fairview, PA 16415. The exhibit is free and open to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 5:30 – 8:00 pm., plus Saturdays 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
