FORESTival’s artists and activities featured in Tulane News

November 6, 2017

The seventh annual FORESTival, a fundraiser for A Studio in the Woods, takes place Saturday, Nov. 11, with new and returning events.

“It’s a lovely day in the woods outside of the city, and that appeals to a lot of folks. It only takes 20, 25 minutes to get here, but you feel like you’re in a different world,” Rennie said. This year’s FORESTival schedule includes participation by former artists-in-residence Byron Asher, a musician, who will perform his original composition, and Benjamin Morris, a poet, who wrote the first draft of his newly published book, Ecotone, there. Morris will read from Ecotone as well as lead a guided tour. “I knew that there would be work waiting for me on that plot. I could feel it,” said Morris of the grounds. “Learning how to ‘read’ a forest – understand the tree growth and species ecology … enabled me to write this book.” Click here to read the full article.
