Tree of Care+Wonder at Salem Farmers’ Market
Tree of Care + Wonder at Salem Farmers’ Market: Thursdays 3-6 (June 8 through October 12)
Gather around the Tree of Care + Wonder to share stories and make art. How do you care for your loved ones? How does your environment inspire wonder? What yearly migrations do you look forward to? Each week will feature a question and form to inspire.
Join Public Artist in Residence on Artists’ Row (PAiR) for the 2023 season, Claudia Paraschiv for weekly conversation and art-making workshops to create the Tree of Care + Wonder / Árbol del Cuidado + del Maravillas, a large scale sculpture of a whimsical tree featuring migrant stories and a magical canopy!
The Tree of Care + Wonder / Árbol del Cuidado + del Maravillas will transform streets in Salem into community spaces of art and friendship to demonstrate the potential of streets to do more than move cars: local artists (poets, visual, musicians, dance, and theatre) will collaborate to produce civic-art events centered on migration stories, food memories, local history, and novel visions of how a future city might take care of and bring wonder to its residents.
A gallery retrospective will be held in November/December 2023 on Artists’ Row/Old Town Hall.
All events and workshops are free to everyone and accessible to people of all abilities.
