  • Thirst

    It ain't Yggdrasil, but we reckon that the white tree in the middle of Lady Bird Lake is going to evoke all manner of mythic response, as Women & Their Work present an iconic vision acknowledging the power of water and memorializing the loss of the 300 million trees that died in the Texas drought of 2011. The results of a vast collaborative effort by Beili Liu, Emily Little, Norma Yancey, Cassie Bergstrom, and many others, the installation also features 14,000 prayer flags that loop for 2.5 miles between the Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge and the First Street Bridge. On display: Through Dec. 20.
