Event description

Description

Artists, scientists, and designers alike have brought Who Takes Care of New York? to life by using the power of visualization to allow us to see stewardship and celebrate those who take care of our city. From the technical to the tactical, we will explore the various strategies employed by these practitioners. Join us for a discussion on the power of images, data visualization, and storytelling to communicate the important role that stewards play in caring for and shaping our city.


Moderated by Lindsay Campbell (USFS, STEW-MAP)

Panelists Magali Duzant, Pamela Pettyjohn, Can Sucuoğlu, Erika Svendsen


Who Takes Care of New York? is an exploration of the variety of civic groups that exist and thrive in New York City, and the ways that they care for and support their local environments. Displayed through maps, art, and storytelling, this exhibition aims to empower visitors with an understanding of their capacity to make lasting changes in their neighborhoods.

This exhibition is organized by the USDA Forest Service’s New York City Urban Field Station (NYC UFS) and Pratt Institute’s Spatial Analysis and Visualization Initiative (SAVI). The exhibition will also feature artists whose work aligns with the themes of community-based stewardship, civic engagement, and social infrastructure, including artists Magali Duzant and Jodie Lyn-Kee-Chow, as well as two NYC UFS Artists-in-Residence, Matthew Jensen and Julia Oldham.
