Art in Action, Main Line Art Center’s reimagined 2018 spring exhibition and scholarship drive, will feature the work of Jessica Curtaz (in collaboration with Pennsylvania School for the Deaf), Ariel Edwards, Elaine Lisle, Deirdre Murphy in collaboration with artist Scott White, and Bernice Paul. Through mixed media, installation, ceramics, and painting, these artists each represent a different facet of our creative community: accessible art programs, teachers, students, members, and staff. Together they embody our vision of art for everyone.
The opening celebration on April 28th will kick off our crowdfunding campaign designed to increase the number of need-based scholarships we grant each year to children, adults, seniors, veterans, and families. Through Art in Action, we hope to raise scholarship funds, celebrate our artistic community and honor our mission to make art accessible to everyone.

Time is the essence of gardening and the natural world. Whether counting tree rings, or planting seeds, the passage of time marks the life of the garden. Sunflowers bend to follow the path of the sun throughout the day. Leaves turn colors in autumn as day length shortens. Common names of flowers often express the essential essence of time’s import: daylily, nightshade, four o’clock.
11am-3pm, Garden Activity Stations: Discover some of the ways time impacts us and the natural world around us at make and take stations throughout the garden. Locations: above the Rose Garden, Oak Allee Plaza, Fernery Plaza.
11:30am and 1:30pm: Live Performance of Nicholas Escobar’s “The Morris Arboretum Suite” Experience a live performance of this musical composition created specifically for the Morris Arboretum by composer and musician Nicholas Escobar, a senior at the University of Pennsylvania.
