Tree of Life

Presented by Cincinnati Art Museum at Cincinnati Art Museum, Cincinnati OH

Nov 17 2015

Tree of Life

The Tree of Life is back and ready for your New Year’s wishes! Visitors are encouraged to make the Tree of Life their very own holiday tradition at the Cincinnati Art Museum. The wishes from the Tree of Life will later be burned, and the ashes will be used to plant a new tree in the Art Museum in 2016.

In its third year, the Tree of Life features a 19-year-old crabapple tree that has been transformed into a sculptural piece of art. Created by Cincinnati artist Matt Kotlarczyk, our Tree of Life embraces our common beliefs and serves as a unifying symbol of hope for the Greater Cincinnati community. More than a Christmas tree, the Tree of Life builds on thousands of years of tradition to bring us together and lead us into the future.


Free admission. Parking at the Art Museum is $4, FREE for Art Museum Members. The Cincinnati Art Museum is open Tuesday - Sunday, 11 am - 5 pm. The Cincinnati Art Museum is closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas. We apologize for any inconvenience.
