COTUIT – The trees on the grounds of the Cahoon Museum of American Art in Cotuit will turn blue this summer for a special exhibit.

The museum has commissioned Konstantin Dimopoulos to create a bold and colorful environmental art installation, The Blue Trees.

This internationally acclaimed artwork draws attention to global deforestation and the importance of trees to the planet.

With the help of community volunteers, Dimopoulos will temporarily transform living trees on the Museum grounds by coloring them a beautiful shade of blue.

The biologically-safe water-based colorant will slowly wash from the trees and they will return to their natural state.

The Blue Trees has been presented in twenty four cities to date and promotes a greater conversation about important ecological issues.

The community is invited to join artist Dimopoulos for the installation of The Blue Trees. There will be many different ways to participate from May 27 through 31. Visit to learn how to sign up.

A free open house with the artist will be held June 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
