Earth Day celebration at the British Residence with Consular corps

Earth Day 2022: Xavier Cortada, British Consul General Brent, and Mayor Levine Cava

Friday, April 22 | 5:30 P.M. – 7:30 P.M.

Xavier Cortada joined the Consular corps and Mayor Daniella Levine Cava at the British Residence on Earth Day 2022 to share his thoughts about the urgency of this moment: He told the general consuls, who usually have 3-4 year terms in the city, “[I know you are temporary residents… but in truth all of us are temporary residents of this planet and must be its faithful stewards.]”

During the evening, British Consul General Nicolette Brent thanked Cortada for loaning two of his original paintings to the British Residence, “Cangrejo” and “Coral | Polyps,” pictured below.
