Want to know where we’re going each week so you can join us? We get invited to events, hear about fun exhibits and are interested in lots of different places all the time. Here’s what is on our radar this week. We can’t guarantee that we’ll go to all these places but there’s a good chance we’ll be at some of them.

Pine Barrens, 1975 film by Nancy Holt
and the work of over a dozen visual artists on the grounds of the beautiful, Historic Whitesbog Village
Join Atlas Obscura Philadelphia and Whitesbog Historic Village for an immersive experience in the storied landscape of the New Jersey Pine Barrens through film, music, and artwork in dialogue with the 3000-acre fallowed blueberry and cranberry farm, conceived and curated by filmmaker David Scott Kessler.
The Pine Barrens, once seen as uninhabitable, has been home to many. Believed to be unprofitable, it gave birth to iron and cranberry industries. Faced with development, it flourished into a UNESCO world heritage site. Perceived inhospitable, it sheltered people seeking refuge. These people told stories around campfires that are still shared today, such as that of the Jersey Devil. The Pine Barrens is a living landscape, full of contradictions, a million acres of remote and frequently burning forest within the nation’s most densely populated state.
Past scorched pitch pine forests, nestled within Brendan Byrne State Park, is Whitesbog, the birthplace of the commercial blueberry industry. Situated among Whitesbog’s trails, bogs, forests, and farm structures, you will discover contemporary artworks that reflect on the role of the natural world in our modern lives. Then, in the village, enjoy an evening of traditional and experimental music and film.
After the screening, keep the Pine Barrens spirit alive well into the night by camping with us at nearby Mt. Misery, where we will make a bonfire for more music and storytelling.
