CITY OF TREES will be screening at Pace University on March 30th, following the screening of the film viewers will have the opportunity to participate in a panel conversation with "City of Trees" director Lance Kramer, Elizabeth Ehrlich and Nicole Roy-Henderson of NYC Parks, Wesley Booker of Green City Force and Migdalia Taveras from Sustainable South Bronx. The panelist will discuss community engagement, environmental justice, employment barriers, racial justice, urban forestry, economic recovery and reinvestment.
In collaboration with the Smithsonian’s Office of Facilities Management and Reliability (OMFR), and Meridian Hills Pictures, the museum recognizes Earth Day with an information display on energy conservation and re-cycling, and a screening of the short film City of Trees. Also get a tour of the museum’s exhibition The Backyard of Derek Webster’s Imagination. Webster was a self-taught artist who used discarded materials to create sculptural figures. Today we would say he “up-cycled” everyday objects to create art!
