Tree Build Community Art Project
Help build a work of temporary public art!
The West Vancouver Community Arts Council presents Tree Build, our 2023 Collaborative Community Art Project!
North Shore artist Matt Monroe conceived & designed this work of interactive temporary public art to inspire dialogue on the impacts of climate change & importance of environmental stewardship & restoration through a collaborative building process.
Tree Build invites the public to come together to create a whimsical, colourful, oversized sculpture in the form of a tree – made from brightly painted pieces of driftwood attached together with connectors created from recycled plastic waste. Members of the community will help 'grow' the work by connecting more & more pieces resulting in a tall, three-dimensional, brightly-colored tree growing in all directions.
Community Collaborations: Weekends in August from 2:30 - 4 pm
Be a part of the creative process by adding new pre-made branches, contemplating our impact on the environment & connecting with our community!
