Eastern Shore Land Conservancy

New installation inside the Eastern Shore Conservation Center


Utilizing open space and some compelling imagery that was originally created for a 2018 exhibit, Pat Rogan of Washington, D.C.-based creative studio Assemble and ESLC staff recently installed some conservation-charged decor to the Eastern Shore Conservation Center.

ESLC originally had the exhibit pieces created as a part of Shore Explorations, a month-long studio where participants strolled through Easton’s Waterfowl Building exploring the Shore’s history, ecosystem, and culture to seek a better understanding of their past, present, and future on the Mid-Shore.

“It is always a thrill to work with experts to try to illustrate a grand vision that helps others imagine what is possible,” says Rogan.

The installation includes two separate graphics – one of ESLC’s ‘preserved forever’ signage that accompanies our land easement properties, layered over by another vinyl mesh graphic of a picturesque Eastern Shore setting. An LED light is placed in between the graphics to make the signage somewhat magically appear through the scenery.

“After first learning about the critical and innovative work of ESLC, I began to look at the rapidly changing landscapes of Delmarva differently. Instead of just feeling threatened by what is being lost with change, I started to see the power of people coming together to shape change while honoring and protecting our region’s rural heritage.”

Once an abandoned eyesore on a main downtown Easton thoroughfare, the Eastern Shore Conservation Center was rehabilitated by ESLC into a LEED-certified, mixed-use campus housing a suite of nonprofit partners, local businesses, and apartments.

The building was purposely designed with space to accommodate members from our community – large and small conference rooms, kitchen area, and outside courtyard all provide an uniquely urban and resourceful backdrop for any group or class needing space to host a meeting, party, or conference.
