Oro-Medonte Art Trees
The Oro-Medonte Art Trees was a township led project. Through the My Main Street Community Activator Program, the Craighurst Public Art Project received $40,000 to install unique and beautiful seven-foot tree sculptures at business locations in the village of Craighurst, Ontario. The sculptures were designed and fabricated locally by David Smith of Oro Design. Following a call for artists and a juried competition, seven local artists were selected to visually enhance the tree sculptures.
I am in the process of writing a fuller description of my process and the Oro area history on my ArtBlog site here.
The Art Trees have been installed at seven locations near the four corners of Craighurst Ontario, located at the intersection of Penetanguishene Rd (Highway 93) and Horseshoe Valley Rd (County Road 22).
