Fabrication of Three Trees out of 316L Stainless Steel and 160 Acrylic Prisms within each branch. Dimensions 20' H x 28" w X 8"
Two of the Trees were installed as a Gateway to the Central Park of Takoma Park with a third single tree marking the back entrance to the Park. The goal of the trees from the artist prospective was to show how important it was for the community to show their dedication to the preservation of its trees and educate the children
Scale Models of the sculptures were created by the artist and ART Research Enterprises, the art foundry, and the Engineers used these models for the fabrication of the trees. The artist worked very closely with us during the fabrication process. Due to the size of the trees, two oversized tractor trailers were needed to transport to Tacoma Park. With the Artist, the truck driver and the crane operator the trees were successfully installed.
Location: Tacoma Park/Piney Branch Park, Takoma Park, MD.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
