"Pem-po-tu-wuth-ut (Place of the Council Fire) Biocoenosis" by Juliana Haliti
Titled "Pem-po-tu-wuth-ut (Place of the Council Fire) Biocoenosis,” the mural by the mixed media artist and educator Juliana Haliti was inspired by the abundant, ecological history of the Capital Region. After hours of research and discussions with experts from the Pine Bush Reserve, NYS Archives, NYS Division for Historic Preservation, and the DEC, Haliti created a beautiful and intricate collection of botany to highlight in the mural.
