In partnership with the Global Philadelphia Association, this special exhibition celebrates the 50th anniversary of UNESCO’s World Heritage Convention by exploring the rich heritage of Philadelphia. Philadelphia’s Independence Hall and its famed Liberty Bell was one of the U.S.’ first World Heritage sites, deemed to be of universal human value for its importance in the creation of the world’s first Enlightenment-era Republic.

For many years some gardeners have been interested in yards and gardens that are more similar to natural habitats than rows of crops. As people spent more time outdoors recently, the concept of “rewilding” some of our more manicured spaces has generated even more attention. This course will begin by exploring why we have the kinds of lawns and gardens we do and then consider alternatives. While there will be some practical information about specific plants that could be used for a more naturally sustainable landscape, the focus of the course will be on helping students assemble the knowledge and resources to design and manage their own yards and gardens.

The roots of activism in Philadelphia run deep, and local archives hold innumerable stories of resistance. But many of these stories — those that center historically marginalized peoples — have been diminished, erased, neglected, and buried. Chronicling Resistance: The Exhibition reveals what eight local activists, cultural organizers, and artists unearthed when they dug deeply into the same Philadelphia archives that have historically excluded their voices and perspectives. Through archival items, rare books, oral histories, and original artwork, Chronicling Resistance counters the systemic erasure of Black, Brown, and LGBTQ+ people from the historical record, breaks silences, and uncovers new ways of understanding and enacting resistance.
