Wanted: a new home for a Palo Alto forest. That is, the collection of photos on glass, hung with wood, wire and acrylic, known as the art installation "The Palo Alto Forest." P.A. photographer Angela Buenning Filo gathered and assembled the photos, which are taken by locals of their favorite trees in town. The work has been on display as part of the grand-opening exhibit at the swanked-up Palo Alto Art Center, but the show is coming down soon and the work has nowhere to go.
Art-center director Karen Kienzle is fond of the piece, but "we're not a collecting organization," so the center can't keep it. "Maybe it could go in a corporate lobby?" she wondered aloud. "She doesn't want to put it in storage," she said of the artist. "She wants it to be enjoyed."
