Swamp

Swampland has always been a part of the natural landscape of New York City. A little more than a century ago, Bear Swamp covered 180 acres of land near the Bronx Zoo, while water from swampy areas of Central Park was diverted by the park's designers to create its lakes. Now, these former wetlands (among others) are the focus of an art exhibition, Swamp, at the Poe Park Visitor Center in the Bronx. Through a series of explorative artwork, the show connects visitors to swampland and builds on the themes of mutability and perception in relation to nature. View pieces from mixed-media artists Tamara Gonzales and Juliet Jacobson, symbolist Jesse Bransford and nearly a dozen others. For more information, visit nyc.gov/parks
