An exploration of nature throughout midtown and downtown Savannah, GA. While humanity, as a whole, shifts and grows from technological advances, our local environments either develop or deteriorate. In order to capture the present state of memorable locations within the city, paintings will be created from the stretching of canvas around trunks of trees in various locations around Savannah. Acrylic paint is the medium of choice and it will be utilized in combination with water for each work.

Keep an eye out around town as local artist, Morgan Smith, along with other volunteers, find modern ways to view the age-old trees of Savannah's historic district.  

Accompanying each piece created will also be a stop-motion video documenting the processes by which they are created. Each will be posted in succession with each work.
