Time Capsule for the trees: Be a Part of the Art

Time Capsule for the trees is an eight-foot-tall curiosity cabinet displaying tree-inspired objects created by the artist and contributed by residents.

Objects can be items that

*Are made possible by trees (like books and wood bowls)

*Represent the many benefits of trees (like sunglasses for shade)

*Conjure memories of trees (like a photo of a special tree)

Objects can be up to 8” tall x 18” wide x 4” deep.**

They should not be made of glass and should be suitable for a family audience. Please note, items will not be returned at the end of the project. If there are more objects than can be displayed with the sculpture at this time, items will be cycled onto the sculpture at a later date.


Bring your objects to the Library during regular hours through April 7. Or bring them to one of the Time Capsule for the trees programs listed at
