Art for Trees

August 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$10

Here at Tree Pitts­burgh, we believe in the pow­er of art to engage the pub­lic in nature preser­va­tion, which is why we’re invit­ing cre­atives to an infor­ma­tive evening of learn­ing about the impor­tance of urban forests.

Coor­di­nat­ed by our own artist-in-res­i­dence, Ash­ley Cecil, this event will include two pre­sen­ta­tions: dur­ing the first hour our edu­ca­tion coor­di­na­tor, Joe Stavish, will share data that explains why trees are crit­i­cal­ly impor­tant to pub­lic health and eco-sys­tems (this will include a tour of our tree nurs­ery); the sec­ond hour will cov­er exam­ples of exist­ing pub­lic art­works that address trees and forestry, includ­ing Cecil’s work cur­rent­ly on dis­play in our build­ing.

We hope the exchange of knowl­edge and ideas will spark new works of art that raise aware­ness about our insep­a­ra­ble con­nec­tion to trees and nature.

Light refresh­ments pro­vid­ed. Tick­ets are $10 or pay-what-you-can. You can pur­chase tick­ets here.
