The Petworth Tree is Blooming!

One very cool aspect of the "A Stroll Through Petworth" section of the 2010 IWWL exhibit is the flower planting interactive. Visitors can write comments on flower petals made of construction paper and pipe cleaners. They take their comment flowers and plant them in the flower boxes beneath a large tree that our students painted on one of the exhibit walls and decorated with construction paper leaves. The tree and flower pots mirror a picture in the exhibit taken by one of our students. Over the last seven months we have watched visitors turn the leaves on the tree into their own comment book. Our visitors have used the flowers for sharing comments and posting their thoughts about the IWWL neighborhoods. Many have tucked their flowers into the tree's leaves, so we followed their lead and started gluing them onto the tree! Check out the images and comments below and see the Petworth tree come to life!
