The Painted Bride Art Center has collected tree memories from throughout Philadelphia for a gallery exhibition this September. Community members submitted photos of their memorable tree and why the tree is important to them. All those photos will be displayed in our gallery.

This exhibit is part of the Bride’s RE-PLACE-ing Philadelphia project. The project is built on the foundation of public dialogue and interaction, using art as a lens for viewing Philadelphia’s history and re-envisioning its future.

Re-PLACE-ing Philadelphia has been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
