ForestSong PR #1
ForestSong PR #4

Created as a response to recent devastating wildfires in the region, ForestSong is a collaborative art project that investigates grief, beauty, and interconnection, shares images and science, invokes the sacred while bearing witness to the effects of natural disasters, and invites action to preserve, protect, and celebrate our natural wonders.


The project is helmed by lead artist Andie Thrams, whose work weaves together art and contemporary ecology to explore the natural world and our relation to it:


“It’s been my dream to paint in collaboration with my community, to create giant forest prayer flags, write poetry in celebration of the beauty of Sierra Nevada forests, and deepen connection to our lands and to each other along the way.”
