Come experience our living world anew in the Pod! Grow your awareness of nature, try on new ways of being, and tap into your own creativity. Discover a life-size wire tree by sculptor Elizabeth Keithline modeled on a live tree from PEM’s campus. Watch dancer Laura Kathrein move as different animals and embody local habitats. And create your own imaginary creature inspired by real animals and fantastical beasts from around the globe. What creative sense will be sparked in you on your visit to the Pod?
The Pod is part of PEM's Dotty Brown Art & Nature Center which investigates our place in nature through contemporary art, memorable objects, and interactive experiences. Designed for visitors of all ages, the family-friendly center features installations, changing exhibitions, hands-on displays, and art-making spaces.
