Every time we look around here in the Bronx lately we are seeing people doing great things to help this borough strip free of the negative stereotypes. A new park, a community garden, new stores with excited owners. Slowly but surely we are making the Bronx a beautiful place.
In celebration of 100 years of the Grand Concourse’s existence, artist Katie Holten is creating a public art work for all to see. The Tree Museum,complete with sidewalk display cases, will stretch 4.5 miles.
Bronx residents can explore the Tree Museum starting June 21st up to October 11th, 2009. There will be an opening celebration in Joyce Kilmer Park on opening day. For more information, visit http://homepage.mac.com/katie.holten/TreeMuseum.html
