This spring, teens from the John Bowne High School agricultural program (located on the Queens College campus) made trunkless tree art with Trees of Tomorrow; we stretched branches into the past and into imagined future food forests of Flushing. Much of the art on this website and in our recent publication is the work of these local Flushing students:
Cherry: Larissa Li; Willow: Angelica ‘Noguera, Katsura: Diana Vazguez, Gingko: Gabriella Heyward; Sweet Gum: Antonio Crespo; Sycamore: Destiny Irazarry.
This artwork shows up in many ways in this project, including in the branch designs on the tour route, and in a series of speculative workshops on possible futures for ornamental street trees.
