Jeff and I installed a special art exhibit in downtown Ft Myers, in the front window of the Franklin Shops on First. The name of the exhibit is “The Children’s Tree Reverie” and features a seven-foot tree that is the culmination of a children’s community art project that we directed, during the 2017 ArtFest Fort Myers festival. Children that attended the festival were taught how to make leaves for the tree from wire and masking tape. “The Children’s Tree Reverie” is a how we like to imagine the weekend we spent getting kids involved with art and growing a tree, in our slightly off-kiltered way we have of imagining things. And, it’s October, so it includes some masks : -)
Here are some images of the weekend at ArtFest, the window installation, and a few of the pieces we sculpted for the exhibit. All of the pieces for the exhibit can be viewed in our portfolio.
