For the Forest was curated for Arts for Peace, an official United Nations Peace Messenger, in recognition of the United Nations declaration of 2011 as the Year of the Forest.‚Äč The event took place at the historic Ten Mile River Scout Camp, established in 1927 by Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the Delaware Valley, NY for the Boy Scouts of America. Amidst the vast woodland, two unique and powerful works composed specifically for performance within natural environments were presented: John Luther Adams' Inuksuit and Yoko Ono's Secret Piece. The evening included a locally sourced, farm fresh banquet and round table discussions on issues affecting our forests. Nightfall brought a "lightwalk", created by artist Nathaniel Lieb, where participants were led along a dark path to view LED-framed bits of the forest.
