—Sound Installation: Years by Bart Traubeck
Adapted from artist Bart Traubeck's sound project, seven trees in the inner and outer courtyard will have small speakers, each playing music derived from specific tree rings. In addition, three albums made by the artist (vinyl on one side, wood on the other) will be on display and playing on a phonograph.

—Wish Birds
On-site art-making station: Come early and devise a hanging paper bird with poetry/wishes as wings. Add your Wish Bird to a courtyard tree, or give it to someone else in the audience as a gift. All materials will be provided.

Tree Lines
Exhibit featuring words and art of the bristlecone pine forest from the soon to be published book, Tree Lines by Valerie and Michael Cohen.
