Celebrate the unveiling of Anythink’s latest collaborative public art installation, “The Singing Tree,” on Saturday, April 27, from 1-3 pm. Enjoy food, art and music while getting an up-close look at this outdoor installation that uses light and sound to create an interactive experience. Created by Denver-based Alt Ethos, “The Singing Tree” operates as a live instrument for onlookers to play and can be programmed to include a variety of different sounds and effects. At the unveiling, attendees will have the opportunity to be a part of The Singing Tree Orchestra by participating in a live group performance led by musician Adam Green. Green will play “The Singing Tree” and conduct participants to join in song – no previous music experience needed.

 The event is free and open to the public. All ages and families welcome. Refreshments will be served.  

"The Singing Tree” is the latest addition to Anythink’s This is Who We Are project, which partners community members with local artists to create public art pieces that represent the fabric of the community. “The Singing Tree” will honor former Anythink Board of Trustees President Ray Coffey and is made possible through the support of the Anythink Foundation.

Learn first-hand about Anythink Perl Mack’s new collaborative public art installation, “The Singing Tree,” with its creators at Alt Ethos. Taking inspiration from music and nature, “The Singing Tree” will use light and sound to encourage uninhibited play and joyous imagination. During this community workshop, join Denver Arts + Technology Advancement and Sphero to create your own mix of art and music using Specdrums. Specdrums are app-enabled rings that allow you to create customizable sounds, beats and loops by tapping colors. “The Singing Tree” will be installed this spring at Anythink Perl Mack. All ages welcome.
