Winter Lecture-The Forest Project

Event Description

(Adults) Dawn Flores spent 20 years communing with a 60-acre urban forest and five years documenting its destruction. Learning lessons on ecology, collaboration and letting go, she turned personal grief into a community-wide art/conservation project resulting in a large body of work. In this gallery talk, Flores will walk you through the creative process that produced eight volumes of photographs, one contemplative movie, more than 60 woodturned pieces and dozens of quilts made from forest-inspired fabric. The pieces are on display at Green Spring Gardens through March 29. The program at Green Spring Gardens runs from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. The cost is $10 per person in advance; $12 at the door. For more information, call 703-642-5173.

Cost: $10.00
