Event Description: 

Please join the Connecticut Forest & Park Association and the Connecticut Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club as we celebrate "America's best idea," our National Parks. We proudly present, in honor of the centennial anniversary of the National Park Service, 2015-2016 New England National Scenic Trail Artist-in-Residence Xiomaro. Xio's photography and dramatic presentation is a great way, short of physically being there, to appreciate and celebrate some of the wonders of OUR National Park.

Join us for pizza, refreshments, and mingling from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. Xio's presentation will be from 7:00pm to 8:30pm, followed by Q& A and/or time with the artist.

Xiomaro is a nationally recognized artist, curator, writer, and speaker whose work has been featured in the New York Times and exhibited at a variety of venues. For more information about the Artist-in-Residence visit www.xiomaro.org.
