Artist Inspired Trees. What if Picasso HAD trimmed a Christmas Tree? Bet it would be interesting to look at.  Volunteer area artists of all ages get together each year to make this one of the Art Center's best-loved annual exhibits.  Each team chooses a famous artist and re-interprets one of their works as a Christmas tree. The results can be beautiful, funny, just plain bizarre....and sometimes all of the above.  It's painless and fun art history for all ages.
