Volunteers Assist with Art Installation
On March 28 and April 2, Deutsche Bank volunteers assisted New York-based artist and renowned tree house architect Roderick Romero in the construction of BBG’s newest site-specific art installation, Sandy Remix. The 200-square-foot, nest-like platform made of trees is the first of Romero’s projects to be set in a public garden and features wood from Garden trees felled during Hurricanes Irene and Sandy that was milled on site. Two teams of volunteers from Deutsche Bank worked with Romero to help build the tree house, weaving woody material from the Garden’s previous onsite sculpture, Natural History by Patrick Dougherty, into its exterior and interior cladding.
These two days were filled with moments of creative collaboration and hard work, and BBG thanks Deutsche Bank for this effort as well as its lead sponsorship of Sandy Remix. Visitors of all ages will be able to experience Romero’s interactive, hyper-local work after the installation opens on April 6.
