“Dandelion Wishes” with Art on Wheels



Dandelion Wishes will enliven a small field adjacent to Rocketts Landing with a whimsical, kinetic art installation that engages participants to create dandelion seeds using recycled bicycle tires.

Referencing the Virginia Capital Trail, which runs along the site and the outdoor sporting focus of Dominion Energy Riverrock, the dandelion seeds are easy to assemble from preprinted sections of used tires. Participants are invited to write a wish on the dandelion seed, and plant it in the field to help breathe new life into our hopes and aspirations as a community.
