Decorated Barns and Working Landscapes; Seeing Pennsylvania Farms Up Close
Thomson Hall/Alumnae Chapel
Enjoy a visual exploration of barn design -- from decorative elements like hex signs and barn stars to how barns and working landscapes functioned together. Learn to understand the components and functions of Pennsylvania farm landscapes, including the relationships that land and water features have with barns and other buildings. You'll also explore recent survey efforts and methodology as well as successful models of collaborative, multidisciplinary preservation efforts that could be used across the state to support and sustain regional agricultural artistic traditions.
