February 7, 2009 - 12pm to 4pm Open House and Artist Reception for our Tree Carving Program!

Joey and I have been working on the Nesting Tree. I took several donated sweaters and sewed them together to create a colorful tree wrapping. The neck portion of the sweaters were used to make small nesting areas. We also hung a handmade LATX banner on the site. The below pictures are our work in progress. Come make it out to the site to view all the wonderful one of a kind finished projects.

What to expect on Feb 7? See the decomposing art. Check out winning entries from Make Space for Art. Buy a t-shirt. Enjoy the outdoors. Take a native plants tour with Texas Discovery Gardens and more! Representatives with La Reunion's partner organization Preservation Tree Services will be on hand to answer all your tree questions. Sturdy shoes and long pants are a must on the site. Please dress accordingly.

Be sure to RSVP to for directions to the site. You won't find out how to get there on this website!
