The Gallery at Main

July and August 2014: Every Tree Tells a Story Traveling Photographic Exhibition

In July and August 2014, the Gallery at Main will host the Every Tree Tells a Story traveling photographic exhibition. The Every Tree Tells a Story exhibition is organized by The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) in partnership with the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy.

This exhibition of twenty-seven framed photographs by twelve photographers is an outgrowth of TCLF's Landslide program, launched in 2003, that includes an annual thematic compendium of threatened and at-risk landscapes and landscape features. Every Tree Tells a Story focuses on trees or tree groupings in twelve states in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. These horticultural specimens, many under threat, range from a two-century old tulip poplar in Washington, D.C., to the 4,000 cherry trees in New Jersey's Essex County Branch Brook Park, to the Rio Piedras ficuses that span seven highway lanes in San Juan— things that surround us and are living reminders of our heritage. These trees and tree groupings recall our nation's past and have the potential to bear witness to coming generations.
