Singing Tree coming to Anythink Perl Mack

Interactive art includes light and sound

Anythink Perl Mack will be receiving a new, outdoor interactive art display called The Singing Tree, which will be erected in front of the library at 7611 Hilltop Circle.

The artwork is the latest addition to Anythink’s This is Who We Are project, which partners community members with local artists to create public art pieces that represent the fabric of the community. The Singing Tree will honor former Anything Board of Trustees president Ray Coffey.

“This is a really exciting project we think the Perl Mack community will truly enjoy,” said Stacie Ledden, director of innovations and brand strategy for Perl Mack. “It will bring some whimsy to the Perl Mack location.”

The Singing Tree, created by Denver-based Alt Ethos, operates as a live instrument for onlookers to play, using light and sound.

“One of the outcomes of Anythink’s strategic plan is that people are enriched by learning and culture,” said Ledden. “The Singing Tree will embody all of the whimsy, imagination and informal learning that we celebrate at Anything.”

Anythink Perl Mack will be hosting an open house for all ages March 16, at 2 p.m. to allow community members to meet the creators at Alt Ethos. Attendees will be able to create their own mix of art and music using Specdrums, app-enabled rings that allow you to create customizable sounds, beats and loops by tapping colors.

“We are honored to be in collaboration with Anythink Libraries,” said Alt Ethos CEO Ethan Bach. “Our goal is to build communities through memorable experiences that are creative and fun.”

Ledden said they tentatively hoping to install the Singing Tree the first week of April, weather permitting, with an official unveiling near the end of April.
