CHEEKWOOD TO OPEN STUNNING PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION, EVERY TREE TELLS A STORY
NASHVILLE, TN, May 3, 2012 – Opening May 26 and on display in Cheekwood’s courtyard gallery through September 3, Every Tree Tells a Story, focuses on the irreplaceable trees and tree groupings, often associated with historically significant people and events that have shaped the development of communities and cultures. This exhibition comes to Cheekwood from the Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) in Washington, D.C. and features 25 images of 12 different sites in the US and Puerto Rico as captured by prize-winning and renowned photographers.
The traveling photography exhibition features sentinel and specimen trees, allées and boulevards, urban forests, formal and vernacular— horticultural features that surround us and are living reminders of our heritage. Like the arts, design, architecture, and man-made structures, trees serve as living reminders of our heritage; they recall our nation’s past and have the potential to bear witness to future generations.
