BeLEAF in Whatcom Art is a Whatcom county-wide art tree, representing the love of art in our community. The tree shape is the canvas on which we will hang the individual art submitted by professional, amateur, student, organization, and community artists. Each person’s, or organization’s, submission will be their art in a leaf shape, honoring leaves, and/or as an interpretation of a leaf.
With this project we have 3 goals:
1) Bring our county's art community closer together.
2) Educate the younger generation (high school & college) on the jury process and encourage them to become involved in arts organizations.
3) Add to the county's art tourism draw.
Several ideas are in play for a permanent location for the tree. Ideally it will be indoors. If you have a suggestion for a location, as well as contact information, please email us using the envelope icon, at the bottom, or via the Contact page.
