In order to grow, we all need a little light. The Delaware River Waterfront Trail provides just that—for both people and nature. Through a series of hand- and machine-sewn artworks, artist Julie “Juicebox” Woodard transforms post-consumer waste into depictions of the Delaware River and native plants found along the waterfront. “Wayfinding waterscapes” found on the Delaware pathway guide you to installations at four public piers accompanied by site-specific interactives created by experience designer Eric the Puzzler.
Through eye-catching artwork, unique puzzles, local natural history, and participation prizes, the creators aim to enhance the nurturing effects of the waterfront and encourage you to forge a deeper connection with your surroundings. This project spans from Race Street Pier to Pier 68. Start by finding one of the plant installations on the piers, or locate one of the 9 “wayfinding waterscapes” along the trail.
This project was commissioned by the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation.
