Help needed: Honey Locust Tree Relocation - May 4


 We Are Looking for Participants!

Honey Locust Tree Relocation

Saturday, May 4

Connecticut meet up 10:30 a.m. (Franklin Street Works)

New York meet up at approximately 12:30pm (Clocktower Gallery)

There are 55 Honey Locust trees growing in New York City’s Zuccoti Park, the central locale of the 2011 Occupy Walls Street protests. Artist David Horvitz collected the seeds from those trees in 2012 and is now germinating them in New York’s Clocktower Gallery. At the end of Horvitz’s Clocktower residency the seedlings will be carried to Connecticut, one tree per person, walking first to Zuccotti Park and then to Grand Central’s Metro North train to Stamford (a 40 - 60 minute ride). Trees will continue to germinate at Franklin Street Works during the Strange Invitation exhibition. To sign up for the event please email your RSVP to sandrine@franklinstreetworks.org by May 1, 2013.

Franklin Street Works, 41 Franklin Street, Stamford, CT 06901 www.franklinstreetworks.org

In June, Horvitz and Franklin Street Works will find permanent homes for the trees, ideally at public institutions such as museums, libraries, and college campuses.
Clocktower Gallery is located at 108 Leonard Street, 13th Floor New York, NY 10013. For more on the artist and project visit http://artonair.org/residency/david-horvitz.
