Warsaw's Aleje Jerozolimskie, "Greetings from Jerusalem Avenue"

Warsaw, Poland view map

Joanna Rajkowska (born 1968) is a Polish contemporary artist who came onto the Polish art scene in the 1990s. Her most famous work is the 15-meter-tall (50-foot) artificial palm tree installed on Warsaw's Aleje Jerozolimskie, called "Greetings from Jerusalem Avenue" (Polish: Pozdrowienia z Alej Jerozolimskich).

The installation was organized by the Centre for Contemporary Art, in Warsaw (13 December 13 2002 - 13 December 2003). Since then, the palm tree has become a permanent fixture of Warsaw, as it was not removed at the end of the official exhibition but instead came under the protection of the President of Warsaw.
