CONNECT is Bernheim’s annual summer celebration honoring the relationships of science, nature, and creativity. Lake Nevin comes alive with spontaneous art, drum circles, light  sculptures, and musical performances from renowned artists along with hands-on art and science activities. This year, the CONNECT Art Exhibition will extend beyond the day of event and remain on display (where applicable) through September 24, 2023. The exhibition challenges artists to create outdoor works that emphasize our mission of connecting people with nature and speak to our focus on clean air, clean water, biodiversity, sustainability, and climate change.

This year we are particularly interested in activating Lake Nevin with floating artworks and experiences, in addition to work displayed around the Lake Nevin Loop! Bernheim can provide a limited number of barrel platforms for artists interested in displaying their work on the water. All artworks will be visible from Bernheim’s Lake Nevin Loop and will be on display before and after sunset. Please consider how your work can create a visual impact at night with the incorporation of non-grid power.

From June 5 – July 7 artists are encouraged (but not required) to come Bernheim’s Lake Nevin for a site visit and meet with the Arts in Nature team to discuss proposal ideas and potential site locations. Contact the Assistant Curator Hannah Coleman-Zaitzeff via email to make an appointment during this timeframe.
