‘The Blue Trees’ Art Exhibit is coming to Pensacola

Thanks to a generous grant from Foo Foo Festival and ACE, the UWF Historic Trust is proud to announce that The Blue Trees: environmental art installation by Australian artist, Konstantin Dimopoulos, will be installed in Pensacola from November 1-9 in conjunction with Foo Foo Fest 2024.
The trees along Zaragoza Street between Tarragona and Jefferson Streets will be transformed into a striking blue forest during the environmental art installation this fall. The Blue Trees is an ongoing international art installation that Dimopoulos has created in 36 cities around the world to date, where, with the help of the community, living trees are colored blue using an environmentally-safe watercolor. The Trust will be welcoming community volunteers to help brush the pigment on the trees under the direction of the artist before a series of planned events around the trees.
The colorant used on the trees is water-based and has been developed specifically for this artwork series. The colorant is also safe for plants, animals, insects, humans and waterways and has been used in all 36 previous installations.
The Historic Trust is planning multiple events to be held around the trees in November and we invite community groups to host events like art workshops, book clubs, yoga classes and environmental discussions under the trees, as well, with Te Greko – konstantin dimopoulos.
