Dave Eames, a local metal artist and Downtown Lee’s Summit Main Street board member, has created an outdoor, interactive sculpture called “The Giving Tree” for display during the holidays.
The tree will be reinstalled for its third year at City Hall Plaza on Friday in Downtown Lee’s Summit.
Residents and visitors will be able to interact with “The Giving Tree” by picking up special tags at participating Downtown Lee’s Summit businesses or at The Giving Tree throughout the holiday season (no cost for the tags). On the tag, you can write down your wishes, thoughts or hopes. Tags are then placed in a box next to the sculpture and hung by the artist throughout the holiday season.
The Giving Tree is sponsored by The Stanley Historic Event Space.
