Art in the Park – Stuttgart Schlossgarten

Recently the work for the new train station in Stuttgart (so called Stuttgart 21) started accompanied by protests and demonstrations. Parts of the demonstrations are full of creativity. Trees in the nearby park “Schlossgarten” are decorated in different ways by the people of Stuttgart. About 250 of these huge trees sometimes more than 200 years of age will be cut down in the next days or weeks.
