How can an urban landscape preserve its community’s history and ecological story, all while celebrating the future?

GBA’s Inspire Speakers Series returns with renowned landscape designer Walter Hood, environmental sculptor Stacy Levy, and interdisciplinary artist and cultural producer Alisha B. Wormsley who will share their experiences capturing the multi-faceted stories of urban spaces. Levy’s work includes the Rain Ravine at the Frick Environmental Center. Wormsley’s body of work includes There Are Black People in the Future and The People Are the Light. Hood, who works across the country, has deep connections to Pittsburgh as he led the Green Print master plan for the Hill District and is the commissioned artist for that neighborhood’s Curtain Call community art project. As always, the inspiring conversation comes with dinner, drinks, and a warm and inclusive community atmosphere.
