DESCRIPTION

Katie Holten’s new, temporary public artwork along the Grand Concourse celebrates its street trees and highlights the Concourse’s influence on the changing neighborhood. The project includes an audio tour and a series of displays along the 4.5 mile boulevard. A selection of artifacts collected for this “Tree Museum” will be exhibited in Wave Hill’s Sun Porch and in the Bronx Museum of Art’s fall 2009 exhibition.
