Each of the two “The Memory of a Tree” paintings on either side of the underpass will be 94 feet wide, 12 feet tall and covering the abutments of the Highway 29 underpass and California Drive.
Mostly done in blues and browns, the imagery will demonstrate to visitors “how many of us are rooted to this land through generations,” Christophel and Lacin wrote in a presentation to the Arts Council.
