The Tree Spa for Urban Forest Healing, a social/public artwork by Colin McMullan, has multiple community partners in Hartford, including Keney Park Sustainability Project, the Hartford Maple Syrup Club, and Knox Parks.
This project uses commercial maple syrup production equipment to produce steam for a functional steam room, creating a healing venue for environmentally-charged conversations and experiences.
The Tree Spa provides a space to think about histories of land connection and displacement in the settlement of this place we call New England, our home.
The project represents a vision for synthesizing complex social and environmental issues, by a holistic approach to building urban/rural community and reconnecting with the Earth.
