A Forest for the Trees – A widely acclaimed immersive art show created and directed by native Los Angeles artist Glenn Kaino, together with The Atlantic, Superblue, and supported by presenting sponsor Mastercard, A Forest for the Trees transports audiences on a journey through a surreal forest of magic, music, and wonder as it inspires us to reimagine our relationship with the natural world. The show is inspired by The Atlantic’s extensive writings that have shaped American attitudes toward nature for more than a century.

“Arborglyphs & Astronomy Lesson with Spacemami” is one of many programs that runs throughout the duration of the show. A family workshop led by Space Science Communicator Dominique Butler who, also known as “Spacemami” on social media platforms, will share a brief history of the West Coast’s only known Native American arborglyph (words or pictures carved into the bark of a living tree.) The arborglyph, created by Chumash tribe members, depicts Ursa Major in relation to Polaris (North Star), giving insight into Chumash astronomy and star monitoring. Participants will then be able to design their own arborglyph before touring A Forest for the Trees.

The family workshop begins Sunday, September 18th, 2022 from 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM at Ace Mission Studios (490 South Mission Road, Los Angeles, CA 90033), and runs every other Sunday at the same time until Sunday, October 30th, 2022.

Tickets for “Arborglyphs & Astronomy Lesson with Spacemami” are $45 online and includes a single ticket for one (1) adult and one (1) child.

Dominique Butler is involved with several space science organizations, and is working to bridge the gap between space science and popular culture by developing methods of education and communication through multiple media platforms. Through her educational articles, videos and outreach work, Dominique aims to share her passion for space science and astronomy.

The Immersive Art show runs through October 31st, 2022 at Ace Mission Studios (490 South Mission Road, Los Angeles, CA 90033) in downtown Boyle Heights, with the show open Wednesday through Sunday from 12 – 9pm (check for daily hours). Tickets are $13.50 – $35 (children and adults, peak and non-peak), and are available for purchase at https://www.aforestla.com/.
