Leaves from Dogwood Dreams community art installation.

Community Art Installation: Dogwood Dreams

What do you hope grows in your life this spring?

Inspired by the imagery of Kimberly Trowbridge: Into the Garden and the beauty of native flora and fauna, seniors across Bainbridge Island contributed to this community art installation celebrating the abundance of spring. Collectively their sentiments of hope, joy, and connection flourish, coming together to decorate the leaves of a Pacific Dogwood tree. Visit this botanical banner hanging in the windows of BIMA’s Museum Store and take a closer look as you spot birds hiding in its branches and community wishes adorning its foliage.

The project was a collaboration with Island Volunteer Caregivers, as part of BIMA’s Creative Aging programming. If you would like to contribute a wish or dream for growth, but were unable to take part through IVC’s Art Kit initiative, please email creativeagining@biartmuseum.org, and we will craft and add a leaf in your honor.
