Shinji Turner-Yamamoto Global Tree Project

From CityBeat's review of artist Shinji Turner-Yamamoto's Global Tree Project:

See the entire review, with photo, here:

"Besides being the best public-art project I've seen in Cincinnati since my return here three years ago, Shinji
Turner-Yamamoto's Global Tree Project: Hanging Garden at Mount Adams´ old (and otherwise empty) Holy Cross
Church is so contemplatively beautiful it should be permanent."

"But that would create a problem - one of the two trees suspended by wires in the middle of the former sanctuary
is alive and needs care and watering. (It's the one on top.)"

"The Japanese-born artist, who lives in Cincinnati and also has a concurrent exhibition, Disappearances, at
Contemporary Arts Center, has devised a watering system, a jewel of technical invention."

"But he could still use your prayers. To that end, Sri Lankan monks from the Ohio Buddhist Vihara will chant on its
behalf from 3-6 p.m. Saturday and Japanese monks will chant at noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is
free; parking is available. "

"The church is at 1055 St. Paul Place. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could find worthy art projects for our other
empty inner-city churches and sanctuaries?"
