Queens Crossing, Flushing, NY I Press Release

Crossing Art announced its public Christmas project in 2010 with artist Lin Shih Pao titled “Relight your Recyclables”. With the help of students and volunteers from the local community and from the public, the tree was built in Flushing Mall for months, with thousands of recycled water bottles and LED lights. “Relight your Recyclables” was complete as a 28’ high tree that was made using over 5,000 recycled water bottles, 10,000 LED lights and a wire armature. A key component of Lin Shih Pao’s concept for the project was that the community played active role in its creation.
