<![CDATA[Exhibition, Benjamin Swett: New York City of Trees]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/04/25/exhibition-benjamin-swett-new-york-city-of-trees http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/04/25/exhibition-benjamin-swett-new-york-city-of-trees Date: April 25, 2013

The photography exhibition New York City of Trees by Benjamin Swett is on view in the Arsenal Gallery from March 6 through April 26 (Arbor Day and Frederick Law Olmsted’s birthday). Twenty-eight color portraits of trees around the five boroughs take the viewer up close to some of the extraordinary species that grow along the streets and in the parks, cemeteries, gardens, and backyards of the city. On view in the Arsenal Gallery from March 6 through April 26 (Arbor Day and Frederick Law Olmsted’s birthday), the images have been selected from Swett’s forthcoming book New York City of Trees, to be released by the Quantuck Lane Press on March 6.

After working at Parks for thirteen years, Swett left in 2001 to pursue a career as a freelance photographer but continued to photograph New York City’s urban forest, fascinated by the connections between trees and the city’s history. “We know that trees improve living conditions in cities by filtering and cooling the air, absorbing excess rainwater, and making neighborhoods more attractive,” writes Swett. “But little has been said about the importance of trees as keepers of a city’s past. The aim in taking these pictures—aside from taking the best photographs I could—was to try to bring back into focus an aspect of the city that most people tend to take for granted until something happens to it. The idea has been to remind New Yorkers how much of their own lives and the lives of neighbors these trees quietly contain.”

This project was partially funded through a grant from Furthermore: a program of the J.M. Kaplan Fund, with additional support from the City Parks Foundation.

Understanding the social and economic causes of the riots as well as the effects of the riots on subsequent New York history helps us appreciate that even in the North, support for the Union cause was not unanimous but a bitterly contested issue. The riots illustrate that the nation’s conflicts over race and labor were not on sectional grounds alone. This lecture will also discuss the draft riots that took place in Jamaica, NY on July 14, 1863. This program, which is free and open to the public, is made possible through the support of the New York Council for the Humanities’ Speakers in the Humanities program.
