Long Description:
This Beuk 3 by artist André Smits, alias DREDD, was created on the initiative of residents of the Essenburgsingel, G.W. Burgerplein and the Beukelsdijk-East. The artwork is the result of a fight by these local residents against the degradation of their neighborhood and the cutting down of the greenery. Beech 3 is placed in the middle of a fairly classic square and has a surrounding bench, which is integrated into the work. As a result, the 'artificial tree' also has the function of a classic tree in a school or village square in the distance. It is illuminated at night by a number of spots, which increases safety on the square. The multi-colouredness of this work refers to the many cultures in the Middelland district. The active group of residents, who have been committed to the quality of life in their neighbourhood, initiated this project with the support of various private and public parties, including: Job Dura Fund, Stichting H.M.A. Schadee-Fonds, Foundation for the Promotion of People's Power, Greenchoice, People make the city, Rotown, Elise Mathilde fund, Erasmus Foundation, Delfshaven district and VKN projects.
