The Grove of Intention Mural Project
Located in Westpac Lane, Christchurch
About the Project
Intentional Creativity© Facilitators and Artists Rosie Mac of Christchurch and Kerry Lee from the San Francisco Bay Area of California have created an international collaboration with “The Grove of Intention” mural.
The mural is the second and the largest in the world of a series of Intention Trees interactive experiential public artworks created by the Intentional Creativity© Guild whose members are found in seventeen countries globally.
The Grove of Intention is a series of seven Klimt inspired graphic trees painted in metallic gold on a dark blue background. Each tree has a specific title and an inquiry related to each tree. View our trees and inquiries below.
We asked for one-word answers to our inquiries and these were submitted on our Facebook and Instagram pages using the hashtags #RosieMac and #KerryLee.
During an “open to the public” Celebration and Unveiling, event visitors were also invited to write their one word answers on a paper leaf and following the opening Rosie Mac and Kerry Lee then painted those answers on the branches of the trees.
Citizens and visitors to Christchurch City Centre are invited to visit the trees on their own, as family, with friends or for a school outing or with a group. Visitors can continue to write their one word answers on a piece of paper or on their phone notepad and take a photo with the mural to post on social media with the hashtags:
#RosieMac, #KerryLee, #TheGroveOfIntention, #EnlivenPlacesProgramme, #ChristchurchCityCouncil, #AllRight?Campaign, #IntentionalCreativity.
