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. The Mother Tree is currently onsite at the MOM Art Annex. She is impactful, lovely, and represents the connection we have to the earth, our families, and our community.
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.
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!
