The Tree Museum

The Tree Museum is a curated space for artists to create site specific works in nature. Located in Muskoka near Gravenhurst, it's a ten minute drive from Highway 11 on Doe Lake Road.

The museum is curated by EJ Lightman and Anne O'Callaghan, and they have been committed to exploring the relationship between humans and nature.

I produced a 10 minute television arts piece on the Tree Museum several years ago, and I recently paid a visit with my family.  We were fortunate that EJ Lightman was on site. We chatted about the evolution of the space and the relationship of decades-old works and their natural surroundings.

Here's a short iPhone video I shot during my visit last month:
