Inspired by Mort Garson's beloved 1976 album of the same name, Plantasia features 11 Philadelphia-based artists focusing on flora and the organic world. Like the album, COMMONWEAL’s exhibition of fun and earthy works explores how art nurtures the cycles of growth within us ensuring that nature’s constant rhythm encourages the potential for new development and change. COMMONWEAL, like Garson, believes in the nurturing capacity of art as a reminder of our incredible resilience.
