With help from the Arts Council of Greater New Haven’s community engagement funding, a successful Kickstarter campaign and with support from Artspace, Nick Pfaff and Hannah Plotke present Through the Trees, an interactive memorial to the victims of gun violence. This project is an affirmation of life, the healing power of art and an unconventional memorial for those we have lost to gun violence.
The public interactive will be on view from until December 30th in The Lot at 812 Chapel Street in New Haven. Eight chrome tree structures will be decorated with ornaments created by New Haven Public School students. The public is invited to draw, paint, write and adorn the trees. To participate in the installation visit The Lot every Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Wednesday of this month from 11-3pm.
