Winter Celebration: Transforming the Landscape through the Millennia from Scotts Arboretum of Swarthmore College
10 South Chester Rd, Swarthmore, PA, United States (map)
Come in from the cold and enjoy a pre-lecture cocktail or glass of wine with friends. Learn from Mariann Smith how, for thousands of years, human beings have reshaped nature to create dwellings, spiritual centers, burial grounds, and other types of communal spaces. We will explore prehistoric sites on five continents, including the Nazca Lines in Peru, the ruins of the city of Great Zimbabwe, North American mound-building culture sites, solstice-aligned structures on Malta, and Asian tomb complexes. Contemporary projects inspired by ancient monuments, such as James Turrell’s Roden Crater, and Spiral Jetty by Robert Smithson will also be discussed. Engage in great conversation during the delightfully casual reception with tasty hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar with wine, beer, and cocktails. Tickets to Winter Celebration make unique holiday gifts!
