Tree of Life - ART
On these pages we present examples of art relating to the Tree of Life
Tree of Life is a public artwork by American artist Nancy Metz White, located at the north end of Mitchell Boulevard Park, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is located in close proximity to Miller Park. Unveiled in 2002,
Tree of Life is constructed out of recycled steel from industry processes. It stands 2½
stories tall, and is brightly painted. White intended for the sculpture to become a place for Milwaukee
locals to gather and forge new community ties.
Tree of Life is a 2½ story tall, welded steel sculpture. The steel was sourced
from industrial waste. The entire sculpture is brightly colored, the tree trunk and branches being a bright
blue-green, with orange, red, yellow, and green leaves. The steel "trunk" and "branches" form an umbrella-like
canopy made from welded-together flashings left over from machinery forging.
