Friday, May 10
Fisher Science Center - Clark Auditorium
Join us for a lecture with old-growth tree expert Robert Leverett. Robert is the cofounder of the Native Tree Society, as well as the cofounder and president of Friends of Mohawk Trail State Forest. Additional career highlights include serving as senior advisor to American Forests' National Chamption Tree Program, chair of Conservation and Recreation Forest Reserves Science Advisory, and coauthor of Sierra Club Guide to Ancient Forests of the Northeast.
Directly after the lecture, all are invited to view a 24-hour time-lapse photography process by renowned New York photographer Kristin Jones. The photography process, BEHOLD, is a cross-disiplinary project encouraging a sense of wonder about trees in our urban environment, capturing multiple perspectives of the white oak tree on the campus of Bard College at Simon's Rock. Kristin will be available to talk about her work.
The lecture and photography process are presented as part of the weekend-long White Oak Tree Celebration, a time to raise awareness about the formidable 260-year-old tree on the campus of Bard College at Simon's Rock. The event is hosted by Daniel's Art Party at Simon's Rock, an exploration of progressive multimedia and community engagement.
Free and open to the public. Register to attend.
