A Forest for the Trees is an immersive show created by Glenn Kaino, and inspired by The Atlantic’s long history of transforming America’s relationship with the natural world. That tradition began with the writing of Ralph Waldo Emerson, a co-founder of the magazine, and continued through the end of the 19th century, when John Muir made his case for the national parks in our pages. Kaino took particular inspiration from our ongoing editorial series “Who Owns America’s Wilderness?,” which launched in 2021 with a cover story by the Native American writer David Treuer arguing for the return of the national parks to the tribes. Located in a 28,000-square-foot space in downtown Los Angeles, A Forest for the Trees will transport visitors to a forest of ethically sourced redwoods, where they will experience a series of encounters drawing on themes from The Atlantic’s journalism.
