Hello everyone, we’re back to update you on all that’s been happening this past month! We have been working on a the public art piece that is now up on Lady Bird Lake.

At the end of September, we haled a 35 foot tree down the Lady Bird Lake to install a white-painted tree in the lake (yes, it is actually standing IN the lake- you can’t miss it!). The piece is part of a temporary art installation called THIRST. The project memorializes the loss of the 300 million trees that died in the Texas drought of 2011. As you walk along the Lady Bird Lake Trail, you will also see 14,000 white prayer flags, transforming the trail into a meditation walk to bring awareness to this environmental issue.

THIRST is not only an art instillation, but a symbol to our relationship with the resources around us, reminding us to love our planet!
