This is the image for the news article titled 2020 Community Art ProjectThe theme of this year's Convocation was HOPE, and the art installation was designed around a Wishing Tree, an idea originally created in Lam Tsuen, Hong Kong in 1770, and more recently promoted by Yoko Ono in the interactive art installation entitled the Imagine Wish Tree project featured in several locations around the world, including the MOMA. 

 

Art teachers at every district school will create a bulletin board featuring each school’s special yarn-wrapped branch -- as seen in the video below.  Wishes from the teachers will be hung from this tree branch. Some student wishes will be selected to print and hang on the tree as well.

Sometime this year, a real tree will be planted in front of each school as a symbol of our district’s commitment to do something positive for our collective future. Selected wishes will be hung from these trees as part of an ongoing public art project.

Be sure to check back as we will continue to share updates and photos on this project.
