Trees in Front of City Hall Turning Blue

Trees in Front of City Hall Turning Blue

The trees in King Plaza, outside City Hall are being transformed into a blue hue before your very eyes starting May 14-18. The Blue Trees project is part of Palo Alto's Public Art installation program. Internationally acclaimed environmental artist Konstantin Dimopoulos will be here to oversee his project that uses water-based, environmentally safe pigments to color the tree trunks a striking cobalt blue. The socially-driven project is open to volunteers 18 and older and hopes to inspire discussions about global deforestation. You can sign up to volunteer by email or by calling (650) 329-2227. 

Dimopoulos will hold a free artist talk and reception on Wednesday, May 16 at 5:30 p.m. in King Plaza. He will be joined by representatives from Canopy and the city’s Urban Forestry department.
