NATURE IN THE WALKABLE CITY
an exhibition by the artists of Studio 155
August 5 to October 3, 2015

Our Theme –

Nature in the Walkable City: How Plants and Wildlife Enrich Urban Life

Summary

Nature in the Walkable City is an exhibit by 15 botantical artists illustrating, capturing through fine art, how nature enriches urban living and is best experienced on foot.

Across the country, a new generation of Americans is flocking to dense, walkable urban neighborhoods, the latest in prime real estate. Moving in as well are older, empty-nester households. It is notably evident in Washington, even in parts of the city once considered less desirable. What’s the appeal? A lively neighborhood, distinctive architecture, abundant nightlife, historic and cultural attractions, along with shortened drive times, all beckon these new urban residents. No less important is nature’s contribution to the built environmenare – the parks, tree-lined streets, gardens, plazas, even wildlife. Add in the new DC priority for green infrastructure, nature as a buffer against intense storms and flooding.

Objectives

To underscore for the metro DC design community and other key constituencies, as well as the general public, the importance of the city’s natural elements as they are central to the community’s health and well-being.
