The Hort’s First Annual Art & Nature Symposium

The Horticultural Society of New York
148 West 37th Street, Floor 13, New York, NY 10018
Thursday, November 13, 2014

Members: Free
Non-Members: $15
Students: $10

The Hort’s first annual Art & Nature Symposium focuses on the intersection of art and agriculture, and how both are used as catalysts for creative thought, environmental stewardship, and economic development. Historically, nature has inspired artists to create, but more as a passive thing to behold. In recent years, artists have taken a more interactive approach to their environment and the surrounding landscape—cultivating it, developing it, creating it. The Art & Nature Symposium invites some of our most important artists, curators, and advocates to explore the role art and culture play in cultivating and protecting our environment.

The Art & Nature Symposium joins our Urban Agriculture Conference and Healing Nature Forum to form a series of three educational programs designed to bring together leading professionals in their fields to examine innovative developments in horticulture and their applications.
