Treeline is a one-day community engagement event and temporary art installation among the trees within John P. Baca park. This project fosters a sense of play, connection, and awareness of place through the formal and metaphorical qualities of line within this neighborhood park. Treeline includes inclusive activities that connect participants through three various line explorations and engagements. These include a free-parts play activity, community weaving reflection activity, and dance activity that will reflect and honor the resident populations based on a conversation with community partners. Participants will be asked to bring a piece of fabric to the event, woven and quilted together and incorporated into a final installation. The artists will hang the work between existing trees at the center and the park's main thoroughfare. After being on display for about two and a half months, this installation will be removed and raffled off to any interested organization or organizations within the community. The physical component of the work may live with the community after the project has concluded.
