Las flores de mi país: Virtual Exhibit Tour and Discussion
Tuesday, September 27, 2022
6:00 p.m.–7:30 p.m.
NYC Parks spans over 30,000 acres and is home to a biodiversity as rich and varied as the Latin American diaspora. In its first gallery exhibition, Las flores de mi País, NYC Parks’ Latino Society aims to represent the diverse communities that make up this great city by exploring interpretations of Latinx culture using imagery of native flora from countries or territories of their choice. Botanicals are used as inspiration, symbols, a medium to create designs, a historical reference, and in textile design that reflect a culture or tradition.
Join us for a virtual tour of the exhibit and a discussion with Latinx community gardeners, who will share how they’ve been inspired by the plants of their ancestral countries and how they’ve brought knowledge and traditions here to NYC.
