Urban Nature Walk: From Lurie Garden to Museum of Contemporary Photography

  • Lurie Garden East Monroe Street Chicago, IL United States (map)

Join artist Lucas Foglia and author Gavin Van Horn (Center for Humans and Nature) for an urban nature walk. Starting at the Lurie Garden, participants will be guided on an excursion that explores the human relationship to nature within the urban context. Discover native plant landscapes and pollinator pathways, as well as the way natural spaces can awaken our sense of connection to the built environment.

Laura Ekasetya, director and head horticulturist at the Lurie Garden, will share insights about the diverse landscape and the community of life that the garden supports. From there the group will walk south through Grant Park and engage in a contemplative activity. The walk will culminate at the Museum of Contemporary Photography (MoCP) to view the exhibition Lucas Foglia: Human Nature.

This event will be hosted for free by Center for Humans and Nature and Museum of Contemporary Photography.
