Tree of Life public artwork Milwaukee  

Tree of Life is a public artwork by American artist Nancy Metz White, located at the north end of Mitchell Boulevard Park, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is located in close proximity to Miller Park. Unveiled in 2002, Tree of Life is constructed out of recycled steel from industry processes. It stands 2½ stories tall, and is brightly painted. White intended for the sculpture to become a place for Milwaukee locals to gather and forge new community ties.

Tree of Life is a 2½ story tall, welded steel sculpture. The steel was sourced from industrial waste. The entire sculpture is brightly colored, the tree trunk and branches being a bright blue-green, with orange, red, yellow, and green leaves. The steel "trunk" and "branches" form an umbrella-like canopy made from welded-together flashings left over from machinery forging.
