Join us on Saturday, September 21, 7 PM at Conestoga Mall for the opening reception of Paul Chartrand's CO2 Sequestration via Trees. 

Paul Chartrand’s new work is an octagonal domed greenhouse, built to mirror the dramatic skylight directly above the main interesction of the mall. The greenhouse will be home to 2,600 silver maple seedlings, representing the number of trees necessary to nullify one individual's carbon footprint.

Following the exhibition, the seedlings will be distributed to Conestoga Mall customers for planting.

Paul Chartrand's C02 Sequestration via Trees is the second CAFKA project made possible by Conestoga Mall. For CAFKA.18 Conestoga Mall sponsored Negotiating +/- by Marcia Huyer. Thank you to Rhonda Richmond, Marketing Manager and Karl Ditoro, General Manager at Conestoga Mall for their support and encouragement.
