AIM Community Tree

We believe that the soul of a community is felt in the collective efforts of a neighborhood enriched by a strong and active arts scene. In the spirit of unity, we invite you to help decorate our AIM Community Tree. Show us what community means to you by creating your own leaf to hang on our first public sculpture. Business owners, schools, libraries, children, adults and pets…come one, come all and share in this year’s AIMFest in Columbia City!
