Art gives new life to trees toppled by hurricane-strength winds.
Forces of Nature is a unique three-day exhibition presented by the Los Angeles County Arboretum. The exquisite collection of wood sculptures and functional art will be presented on the one-year anniversary of the catastrophic windstorm that struck the San Gabriel Valley.
All artwork was created from wood salvaged from the 235 Arboretum trees lost during the storm. More than 75 generous and highly accomplished artists have come together for the exhibition, which is curated by Leigh Adams.
The art will be for sale throughout the three-day exhibition. Proceeds will support the Arboretum Tree Fund, contributing to the purchase of new trees and the restoration efforts to preserve the Arboretum for future generations. There will be a special evening reception with live and silent auctions on November 30.
