A Selection of Other Works:

 

In PositiviTree, an unforgettable 35-foot public art installation in Downtown Silver Spring, Maryland, a vivid array of hundreds of umbrellas unfurls into a grandiose assortment of bright colors and patterns bedecking every inch of a colossal holiday ‘tree’. On top, a beach-sized parasol rotates playfully, its reflective streamers dancing on the season’s breeze. But this piece is at its very best after sunset, when an ever-changing light show undulates across its surface from within.

 

To delight even the most dyed-in-the-wool Scrooges amongst us, the breezeway leading out to the main plaza is itself also canopied with glowing umbrellas in myriad sizes, shapes and colors.

for the 2016 Holiday Season

on the Fountain Plaza in

Downtown Silver Spring, Maryland

 

Nov 2016—Jan 2017

Symbolically the umbrella can represent protection, safety and inclusion. The Artists hope to inspire people to reach out and offer ‘shelter’ in any of its many forms to those in need of sanctuary. An act of kindness can increase the peace. This 2016 holiday iteration in Downtown Silver Spring sends a message to encourage open unity and welcome friendship.

 

Come together here and feel safe, snug and sound.
