Trees transform, shield, shade and provide oxygen, fruit, and beauty. Without trees, humans would not survive. Each tree has its own distinct, unique energy, as does each person. Trees and people together create a sense of place. Given the length of time trees live, they span multiple generations of a community and have stories to tell even after they cease to live.

Working with artist Phillip Campbell, the daVinci Pursuit will utilize fallen iconic trees along each waterway to create artistic boat sculptures that reveal the stories each held during its life, stories of people, communities, beauty and nature. In cooperation with KIB and neighborhood leaders we will select those trees that have a special sense of place and transform them into one hundred boats.
