Festival of Trees: Dreamscapes

This annual exhibit features trees that are decorated or created around a theme. The last two themes were cultures and literature. The cultural tree exhibit was created by local ethnic heritage groups and the literature themed exhibit was created by librarians at King County Library System. This year the Museum has chosen the theme of “dreamscapes” and is looking for arts and culture professionals’ interpretation of that theme! If selected, you will receive a $300 stipend post-installation. A people’s choice voting will take place during the exhibit’s run and the tree with the most votes will receive an additional $500 award.
