While finishing up a job in set building, make-up artist/photographer/designer Adam Tenebaum was given three chandeliers by the client. Finding the chandeliers were to large for his house he naturally hung them in the tree outside. Having a contracting license, Tenenbaum was easily able to light them. Many chandeliers later the tree is now coin operating allowing passersby to enjoy the warm light (and partially offset a very large electric bill). After passing the Chandelier Tree for some time Filmmaker Colin Kennedy decided to contact Tenenbaum and film a documentary about the neighborhood project.
