A new exhibition entitled Sensing Change which opened on July 1, 2013 at the Chemical Heritage Foundation in Philadelphia, PA, features a number of visual artists who exploit different techniques to illustrate environmental change. As an example, Village Green (pictured, photo by Kevin Kennefick) is a work by Vaughn Bell which allows visitors to experience a worm's-eye view of native plants.

Other artists include Diane Burko, Roderick Coover, Katie Holten, Stacy Levy, Eve Mosher, Andrea Polli, Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg. They have attempted to visualise invisible processes like air quality while challenging the viewer to see the environment from a different perspective.

Environmental scientists who have provided oral histories to accompany the exhibits include Ronald C. Cohen (University of California, Berkeley), Kenneth J. Davis, Pennsylvania State University, and Peter DeCarlo, Drexel University.
