The Fifth Season: Tree Project Artists of Oak Park

The Fifth Season: Tree Project Artists of Oak Park

Tuesday, March 1, 2016 - 12:00am

Trees are dying at an alarming rate largely due to climate change. After many seasons of enriching our cityscapes with beauty and our air with oxygen, these dead trees in Chicago's parks are being turned over to artists to extend their life into a fifth season; a season of art.
Using art as a vessel for public engagement, these three Oak Park artists are among the sculptors up-cycling trees into engaging and thought provoking experiences for the greater Chicago community.
