Chilao School, Chilao Campground, Angeles National Forest
From the 210 Freeway in La Canada Flintridge, take Angeles Crest Highway (Highway 2 north), 26 miles to mile marker 49.69. Turn left into Chilao Campground and follow signs that say Redbird/Chilao School.
The Human Cost - a visual body of work by Pablo Piovano documenting the effects of glyphosate (Monsanto's Round-Up) on the field workers of Argentina - will be shown for the first time in California at Chilao School's opening event on April 7.
Pablo Piovano has received awards and recognition in Europe for his body of work known as The Human Cost. But it has never been seen in the United States. So the first public showing of Pablo Piovano's artistic, tragic photographic documentary, The Human Cost, will have its debut at Chilao School on April 7.
Piovano's body of work documents the effect of glyphosate on the human population of Argentina's agricultural laborers. Augusto Loggia and Marcela Dreiman will present the work after 12 PM as a part of Redbird's first event of the 2018 season.
Chilao School is located in the heart of the Angels National Forest in Los Angeles County, accessible from the 210 freeway in La Canada Flintridge. Everyone is welcome to attend. There is no admission fee, and there will be refreshments. Donations are appreciated but never demanded.
Piovano's work is compelling, provocative, immediately engaging. You do not stand apart from his subjects. You feel them; their anguish, their laughter, their bewilderment, their acceptance, their love for each other. All those emotions and many more are palpable in this body of work.
The Human Cost will be presented as a part of Birds and Bees, Bears and Butterflies, an environmental learning day hosted by the Native American and environmental non profit Redbird with support from Southern California Edison.
This is a family friendly event which will include a live monarch display with butterflies in all stages of development, presentations on our local wildlife and habitat, story telling and cultural presenters. Additional presentations offering either or both biological and cultural insight and wisdom about our California fauna are welcome, as well as artists of all disciplines. This is an opportunity to get acquainted with the forest and its community and share valuable knowledge.
On-site tent, RV and vehicle camping is available for the weekend. Please email for additional information.
