Tree of Life

Made in collaboration with Wilfredo Morel, Jim Taylor and the Peekskill Youth Bureau

This tree is made from an uprooted tree and driftwood found at Peekskill Bay. The branches were collected after a storm in October. Hundreds of wood leaves painted in red, bear the names of those touched by HIV/AIDS. The leaves are hung with red ribbon, the universal symbol of awareness and support for those living with HIV. The tree represents the community and how we are all interconnected. This temporary installation was erected at Pugsley Park on Dec. 1, 2011, the thirtieth anniversary of HIV/AIDS. Sponsored by the Peekskill Youth Bureau and Hudson River Community Health.
