Part of Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s new “S(tree)twork” project (http://streetworkproject.net/), a multi-year, public art project rooted in Philadelphia whose aim is to animate how we live among trees; how we perceive them; and how we imagine our future cohabitation
As the city of Philadelphia embarks on a comprehensive Philly Tree Plan, with a focus on reforesting low canopy neighborhoods, we will come together in the spirit of the visionary composer and pianist Sun Ra whose musical philosophy transcends earthbound limitations through belief in the impossible and the powers of imagination and joy.
