Created by Cincinnati artist Matt Kotlarczyk, Tree of Life features a crabapple tree that has been transformed into a sculptural piece of art. Visitors are encouraged to write wishes for the New Year, which will adorn the tree. This tradition, at the museum during the holidays since 2013, provides a symbol for community, culture, beauty, family and tradition—the values that embody the holiday season. This exhibit will be located in the Near Eastern Galleries (G147-149). FREE admission to the museum and Tree of Life; no tickets required.
