Fairmount Water Works features a series of water-themed exhibits designed to educate viewers about how people and the environment interact. Some of the highlights include a working model of the Water Works, an animated fiber optic display about the water cycle, a live video display focusing on migrating fish and more.
A birds-eye view of snow and ice melt at the North Pole is the subject of a tryptich plus one, on display at the Fairmount Water Works. The four-panel painting was created by Philadelphia artist and environmentalist Pamela Tudor.
In celebration of the Water Works' 200th anniversary, the Mendelssohn Club is teaming up with the Leah Stein Dance Company and composer Byron Au Young to present "Turbine," an immersive new multi-genre performance piece. Featuring choreography and music shaped in response to the site's architecture and landscape, "Turbine" celebrates the Water Works and the Schuylkill watershed region through sound and movement.
