The Kid Should See This

The Chandelier Tree – Silver Lake’s twinkling neighborhood gem

Over the course of six years, Adam Tenenbaum turned his Silver Lake, California front yard tree into one that was filled with the warm light of 30 vintage chandeliers. In this short, filmmaker Colin Kennedy (who lives down the street) talks with Adam about how this public art project began.

We wish our neighborhood had a Chandelier Tree. If you’re in Los Angeles, be sure to visit, or if you’re not, perhaps you can make your own version in your neighborhood!
