Pack your bags!

We have great news!

What began four years ago as a small-scale collaboration resulting in a single tree branch explodes once more into a complex and fanciful woodland. For a few magical months, a global forest will grow in Atlantic City.

If you weren’t able to see it in Pittsburgh, you have a new chance to visit the Forest that will be filing the Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University in Atlantic City.


Into the Forest will be in exhibit from SEPTEMBER 27, 2019 to JANUARY 2, 2020. The opening celebration will be September 27, 2019 from 6 to 8 pm.

So, put this in your calendar, start packing your bags and come visit the Forest!
We hope to see you there!
