WHAT: The Mother Tree is a seven-foot tall handmade paper installation featuring single strands of thread which have been crocheted by over 400 participants around the world. Helen is an internationally acclaimed artist, author and educator.
WHY: These community-made roots connect individuals across time and space. MOM is devoted to these connections. We believe the Mother Tree will be an exciting and inspiring new addition to our permanent collection. Her transformative nature signals the launch of our new expansion plan.
WHEN: JOIN US for monthly onsite (and Zoom) gatherings. This is an opportunity to crochet a root for the tree & learn about MOM. (Instructions for crocheters HERE). Even if you can’t attend, you can donate! Send roots to us, along with your intentions, and make a $20 donation to MOM (or more).
GOAL: We aim to purchase the Mother Tree for our permanent collection. Will you help us raise the $25,000 necessary to make the Mother Tree part of MOM’s permanent exhibitions? Donate now please!
Our goal is 1,250 new roots – Will you be part of this stunning collaborative experience?
