6:30pm: Awards and Artist Discussion

This exhibit is an exploration of the theme Nature Neglected: “Are we loving it to death?” Photographers are asked to consider the impacts of modern human activity and overuse of the natural world in a dense urban environment through artistically powerful images. Can art prompt the reexamination of our impact, thinking and use of the Milwaukee River Greenway?
Learn the thoughts of the artists behind the photographs of the Greenway.

7:30:Documentary Film Screening “Intelligent Trees”

Awards are followed by the screening of the award-winning documentary film \”Intelligent Trees\” by Peter Wohlleben and Dr. Suzanne Simard. They show the seemingly unbelievable: How trees communicate and care for each other.
Trees talk, know family ties and care for their young? Is this too fantastic to be true? Scientist Suzanne Simard (The University of British Columbia, Canada) and German forester and author Peter Wohlleben have been investigating and observing the communication between trees over decades. And their findings are most astounding.

Appetizers and wine available.
