Arboretum Events

Cultures of Ecology Artist Walk

Students, staff, and the community are invited to join us for an artist walk through the Humber Arboretum, led by artist, educator, and Arboretum staff member Benjamin Verdicchio. Starting at the North Space gallery this is an informal walk meant to look at the Humber Arboretum with an expanded and critical lens. Topics of art, architecture, landscaping, design, politics, social sciences, philosophy, and many more will be casually discussed in and amongst the Arboretum's vast and varying landscape. This workshop is co-hosted by Humber College’s L Space Gallery and the Humber Arboretum.
