Wisteria Place — one of Optima Living’s newest, high-quality seniors’ communities — was built on a belief in living a life in harmony: with people, community, and nature. To represent these core values, Optima Living commissioned local B.C. artist Roger Brenninkmeyer to create a sculpture of a wisteria tree made of 18,000 plastic bags. The tree now graces the halls of our community, viewable by our residents as they go through the foyer to breakfast every morning.

Brenninkmeyer was featured in Global News for his work as an environmentally conscious artist creating sustainable art pieces out of plastic, with the installation at Wisteria Place at the centre of the story as Brenninkmeyer’s largest and most significant creation to date.
