Possible Realities is an exhibition of environmentally focused art proposals for the Karl Stirner Arts Trail. Regional artists Nancy Cohen, William Lamson, and Lauren Rosenthal—along with a group of student Mellon Fellows—were commissioned to produce a series of “possible realities” as a way to expand our perception of the potential of the serpentine path that runs along the Bushkill Creek between Easton’s Third Street Corridor and the Simon Silk Mill.

The proposals were funded by the College’s Environmental Studies Initiative funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
