Up In The Trees 1, 2 and 3
Commissioned by the Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose, Julia Anne Goodman created a beautiful site-specific installation called Up in the Trees. It is made from handmade paper pulp made from used, colored, 100% cotton t-shirts and willow branches. It also highlights different trees and animals that inhabit the Santee neighborhood community. Hanging throughout the space you will see goldfinches flying by a London plane tree, squirrels snacking next to a ginkgo leaf, a raccoon hiding between cottonwood leaves, a silkworm ready to munch on a mulberry leaf and monarch butteries smiling from behind clusters of eucalyptus leaves. This artwork is enjoyed by both children and children-at-heart.
