Digital Photo Tree Helps Visitors Get In The Mood For A Joyous Children's Museum
The Community Tree is part of a major addition that more than doubled the size of the Children's Museum of Denver when it opened last November. The expansion includes two new wings with a climbing tower, art studio, teaching kitchen, water and energy exhibits, plus a new entrance and a 30,000 square foot outdoor adventure park.
The whole Museum is based on the idea of “sophisticated whimsy,” where children and adults learn through play. The 20’ tall, abstract copper and steel tree-like structure with 30 Planar LED-lit LCD displays forming the canopy. Each shows a picture of a family. It’s the first thing visitors see when they walk into the Museum.
