Rock it Red St.Petersburg” is an art installation which created a mile and a half long virtual red ribbon on Central Avenue by wrapping 173 trees in red cloth. It was done in honor of World AIDS Day 2014. The installation featured an opportunity for visitors to write messages of remembrance and inspiration for those touched by the epidemic.

The project was the brainchild of local artist Jim Buresch, who dubbed it “Rock It Red St. Petersburg.” It took about three dozen volunteers, many of them provided by Bank of America, two days to wrap the trees.
