Thursday, June 27, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

For the past six months, Tree Pitts­burgh has had the plea­sure of host­ing artist Ash­ley Cecil as our Artist-in-Res­i­dence at our beau­ti­ful cam­pus on the Alleghe­ny Riv­er. Her time with us con­cludes with the exhi­bi­tion FRUITFUL, open­ing June 27 from 6–8 p.m. on our cam­pus. The work will be dis­played until Sep­tem­ber 26, 2019.

Ash­ley spent six months read­ing books, spend­ing time with our staff, and in our Her­itage Nurs­ery to learn about the urban for­est and the ben­e­fits it pro­vides. FRUITFUL is the cul­mi­na­tion of Ash­ley’s time, reflect­ing specif­i­cal­ly on how trees and green space can pro­tect and heal our bod­ies and reduce inner city crime.

Ash­ley’s work sheds light on what we stand to gain by pro­tect­ing and expand­ing urban forests, as well as a theme of reci­procity — when we plant and care for trees, they gen­er­ous­ly give back to us.

Join us for the open­ing of FRUITFUL Thurs­day, June 27 from 6–8 p.m. to view Ash­ley’s work and enjoy drinks and refresh­ments as well as print-mak­ing with fresh leaves (kid friend­ly!) This event is open to the pub­lic, but we do ask for an RSVP here.

Twen­ty-five per­cent of all pro­ceeds from the exhi­bi­tion will sup­port Tree Pitts­burgh pro­grams. Thank you to The Fine Foun­da­tion and the A.W. Mel­lon Edu­ca­tion­al and Char­i­ta­ble Trust Fund for their sup­port of this res­i­den­cy collaboration.
