John Hirschboeck, Daffodillion Project Director is the creator of this tree. It celebrates Newport’s Daffodil Days Festival which was an all-volunteer event in support of Daffodillion. A non-profit organization, Daffodillion’s goal is to beautify the city with 1 million daffodils every Spring. Any proceeds from the Festival go to purchasing more daffodil bulbs to plant each fall.

Thursday Thought: Newport Health Equity Zone Tree Wrap

HEZ Tree Wrap

 

The Newport Health Equity Zone created a tree that showcases our 7 Guiding Principles: Community Design, Equal Voice, Disruption, Open, Collective Impact, Celebration, and Sustainability. Every member of our team participated in the creation of this tree, which involved wood and vinyl cutting, weaving, and painting. It truly exemplifies what the Newport Health Equity Zone is all about, working together to create spaces that we feel good about. Please come to Miantonomi Park and check us out!

Thursday Thoughts: The Thompson Middle School Tree Wrap

Thompson Middle School 7th Grade Tree Wrap

 

Our grade 7 students were fortunate enough to have a tour of Newport Art Museum last fall with me (Nicolle Icart), John Harvey and the help of the cluster grade 7 teachers here at Thompson Middle School. During our visit, we saw two pieces by Dale Chihuly — an RI resident artist and a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design.

When the tree project came about we knew we wanted to work with inspirations from the trip as well as working with environmentally sound media. Students in grade 7 do a unit in science based on recycling that we coattail off of as well. We did an introductory lesson on Dale Chihuly’s art during art class time. The end product of the floral bottle tops, each painted by a seventh grader, followed to emulate the brilliance of Dale Chihuly’s vibrant eclectic masterpieces.
