Penn State Lehigh Valley is a partner that has experience working with artists on site specific and community art projects. With this project, they will more actively engage students and the campus community with community partners within the Lehigh Valley region.
The Lehigh Valley committee selected artist Elsabé Dixon, based in Virginia, who is working with entomologists at Penn State Lehigh Valley to explore issues related to the invasive Spotted Lanternfly. Dixon is creating an installation based on her findings that asks for viewer engagement with issues surrounding this invasive species.
