Every Tree Tells A Story
Join us for a second ArtLab collaboration with environmental artist Pamela Moulton and help create elements for her upcoming public art project Every Tree Tells A Story, TEMPO Art’s 2022 installation presented at Payson Park in Portland this June. Paint buoys, weave brightly colored materials into netting, unravel floating rope to create long flowing tresses, and most importantly, become part of the story!
Moulton builds large-scale art installations that engage the public, sparking conversations about environmental problems our planet faces. Her present work uses abandoned fishing gear to create whimsical interactive sculptures that are both weirdly fun but also show nature’s perilous beauty. These playful immersive sculptures are created through community hands and it takes an army!
Pamela Moulton currently resides in Maine after spending 25 years in France. A textile and installation artist, she received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Vermont and Villa Arson, France and her MFA from Ecole Superieure d’Aix en Provence. Pamela worked in New York City as a set designer and art director while continuing to exhibit abroad as a fine artist. Her projects range from designing a museum around the senses, teaching students from 2- 106 years old and managing Hewnoaks artist residency program, and most recently she collaborated with the Arcadia Earth in Las Vegas.
