Reconnect with nature and the arts

The mission of the Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art is to merge the arts and the natural world and foster a celebration of both.

Story

"Seeing is more than merely looking, it involves noticing things" - Ned Smith

 

Rooted in the scenic Susquehanna Valley of Central Pennsylvania, we strive to be the leading institution for the collection and dissemination of art and natural history knowledge, particularly when the two intersect and reinforce one another.

We are the repository for the art, writings and other work of the late Ned Smith, from whose life the center takes its original inspiration. The center seeks to appeal to all ages, races and genders across Pennsylvania and beyond.

Our goal is to be viewed as a vibrant cornerstone to the cultural, economic, social and environmental life of communities near and far.
