Interconnected Roots - Arlington Arts

Contribute to a collaborative work of art that highlights the beauty of biodiversity and reflect on ways we can support efforts in creating an inclusive community. By painting colors that express your identity within a pattern inspired by traditional weaving patterns from his homeland of Mexico, artist Edgar Reyes leads participants on an exploration of what is native and non-native - not only in plant, bird, and insect species, but also about his own journey as an American with Indigenous and European roots. This project helps participants to understand how being stewards for our local biodiversity is interconnected with supporting our communities.

MAKE: Make your mark on a new community mural
MEET: Edgar Reyes, artist and educator from Baltimore, Maryland; an Arlington arborist; or a representative from Plant NOVA Natives.
LEARN: About the diversity and interconnectivity of our communities and the native plants that grow within them, as well as the Forestry and Natural Resources Plan.
