October 1, 2016: Take a look inside a WISY Vortex screen! This screen (labelled filter in our living building) is part of the first flush rainwater capture system located in our Ecotone. The screen helps to remove dust, pollen, and anything that falls on our roof and remove it from the water system prior to storage in our reservoir. Thanks to Chris Chamberland of Berkshire Design Group for the video.
August 1, 2016: EnnisArt completed an artistic rendering of the Connecticut River watershed and primary tributaries. The work is stained into the concrete floor in the Ecotone, the hall that holds our rainwater exhibit. We invite you to view a timelapse of this installation.
June 29, 2016: Congressman Jim McGovern Announced a $148,586 Federal Institute for Museum and Library Services Grant To Hitchcock Center for “Learning from Nature” Exhibit Design. View a video of this event prepared by Daniel De Wit of EnnisArt.
