The PoeTREE: A Tree I Love

Is there a tree you've loved? Or one that’s been important in your life? Past or present, near or far? Help create The PoeTREE by writing in any language and/or sharing an image of a tree you’ve loved via the public Facebook group or @atreeilove on instagram. Artist Priscilla Stadler will gather these tree stories and form a collective tribute to trees from them.

Join us for the livestream event Shared Dialogues, Shared Space on May 31, 2020 when The PoeTREE will be featured with projects by Rejin Leys, Jamerry Kim, Cody Herrmann, and Young Sun Han. The project aims to expand the connection of Asian immigrant communities with contemporary art practices.

New Iteration

For this iteration of The PoeTREE, the tribute was  to have been a sculpture collaboratively made with the public in a park as part of the "Shared Dialogues, Shared Space" project. There was just one problem. The nature of "shared space" changed radically since my work was selected to be part of the project. Over the weeks of the pandemic, we realized that not only would the timetable need to change, but so would the essence of participation.
