The Tree of Generosity


 
The Playhouse-in-the-Park is proud to announce the establishment of the Tree of Generosity. This giving program will serve as a lasting tribute and measure of support for all who have been touched by the Playhouse in the Park through the years.  Click here for photos of the work in progress!

The Tree of Generosity sculpture is the work of David Hebert, owner of Mobile City Metals, a full service, creative company based in Mobile, Alabama. David creates both functional and creative art pieces with repurposed metals. The design is a collaborative effort between the artist and Pamela and Danny Mollise. The sculpture is featured in the lobby of the Playhouse in the Park, located on Museum Drive in Langan Park, Mobile Alabama.
