Arbor Day Virtual Observance

In celebration of Arbor Day 2021, a collection of artistic expressions in poetry, photography, videos, posters, animation, sculpture, collage, paintings, drawings, etc. inspired by trees, their importance, and benefits were assembled to showcase our appreciation and connection to trees.

Special thanks to the collaborative efforts with the Office of University Sustainability, Art and Art History Associate Teaching Professor Gretchen Scharnagl, and the FIU community.
