Urban Arbortecture is a walking tour through downtown Seattle. I use trees as a jumping-off point to discuss the city’s history, progress, urban planning developments, social justice, and public art. Stops include Pilgrim Pillars Park, Freeway Park, the Tree Grate Museum, the Giant Sequoia on Stewart Street, and Anne and Patrick Poirier’s New Archetypes.
I initially created the tour while I was an artist in residence with the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture. I have since led this tour through Atlas Obscura and presented it as a TED-like talk for Ampersand Live! at the Moore Theater, Seattle, WA
