There’s a new public art installation in Denver. Work on it started yesterday and continues today. Artist Konstantin Dimopoulos, with the help of volunteers, is creating his Blue Trees project. It entails painting all the trees in the Denver Theatre District blue. I can’t think of a better place or a more striking way to draw attention to global deforestation and the importance of trees to people and their environment.
The trees, instead of blending into the background, make a bold statement with their brilliant, biologically safe, water-based, non-permanent colorant.
Dimopoulos takes his Blue Trees project to cities around the country.
