‘Blue Trees’ coming to Pease Park

Friday, July 31, 2020 by Tai Moses

To celebrate the grand reopening of Kingsbury Commons next year, the Pease Park Conservancy is working to bring a renowned art installation to the park. The Blue Trees, by Konstantin Dimopoulos, “highlights ecological issues, while also transforming the environment and trees into a magical piece of art that people experience.” The installation is planned for spring 2021 as a highlight of the celebration, which will include ongoing educational opportunities and a family day. The Blue Trees has appeared all over the world, from California and Tennessee to Canada and Germany. The colorant that turns the trees such an otherworldly shade of blue is a natural pigment that fades over time and is not harmful to the trees or wildlife. The conservancy is asking community members to fill out a quick questionnaire (with only one question) asking if they support efforts to bring The Blue Trees to Austin.
