The Wishing Tree

On my way to the Cartoon Art Museum in Downtown SF, I stumbled upon this striking public art. In the gardens fronting the Jewish Contemporary Art Museum stood these two humble trees. The trees were planted in contemporary planters and adorned with hundreds of paper tags.

On these delicate slips of paper, people wrote their wishes then tied them to the tree. From wishing for peace to a grandmother wishing the end of the world doesn’t happen so she can see her new grandchild, It was an endearing sight and simply beautiful. If you’re ever in the neighborhood near Yerba Buena Gardens, find this magical tree and leave a wish or two.
