Oppenheimer Park is the site of Legacy Sakura trees planted in 1977 by a group of over 70 first generation seniors as part of a project coordinated by the Tonari Gumi (Japanese Community Volunteers Association). This year’s exhibition considers the wisdom and beauty of these historic trees and will delve into the themes of nature, time and place generated through community meetings and a vote in June 2018. Thirty-five artists’ diverse interpretations will be featured in the show.
