BOXES beyond borders

Grass Roots

Judy Kleinberg with Sharon Chinen
USA - California 2006

Tajima Box Project. An artist and an extraordinary woman collaborate to create a box.

Judy Kleinberg, MAYOR OF PALO ALTO and Sharon Chinen, ARTIST.

The mayor’s interest in growing a healthy community is represented in the roots of this piece. The box is filled with the soil of Palo Alto, laid down as a rich foundation for the small red berries which represent the children of Palo Alto and education…two passions of Mayor Kleinberg. Our roles as women, teachers, caregivers, leaders — the flourishing community of which we are all a part — is finally represented by the blossoming trees that reach out to the world at large.
