LOCATED at KAUPPAKATU 17. Painted with concrete paint.
The artwork is a participatory project and part of Mänttä Art Festival 2017.An abandoned building gets a new life. Each wall represents a season. Participants of all ages paint their own tree or take turns painting the big trees. The event celebrates Finlands centenary year and the paper industry of Mänttä town. The trees symbolises the diversity of the country’s population, now and in the future.
Humankind is like the trees. Both come in all shapes and forms and need a fertile soil to take root. Everything is connected. All is one, one is all.
