Madison Community Foundation selects Keith Dotson's Bicentennial Oak photograph for new office

A large black and white print of Keith Dotson's Bicentennial Bur Oak photograph will hang in Madison Community Foundation's new office space

Many thanks to Madison Community Foundation (Madison, Wisconsin) for selecting my black and white landscape photograph of the bicentennial bur oakwhich stands majestically in a Madison-area parkto hang in their new office space in downtown Madison.

A framed 20 x 30-inch black-and-white print of the beautiful tree will be unveiled to the public at the organization's Open House in April 2018. 

The 200-year-old bur oak is also known as "the story tree" because local school children take trips there to sit under its widespread branches and listen to stories of the region's history and legends.

As seen on television

This photograph of the bicentennial bur oak is one of three Keith Dotson photographs featured on television in recent seasons of Grey's Anatomy.

Hi Keith,

We were excited to welcome your Bicentennial Bur Oak photo at our office today. Thanks for the MCF shout out online too! Where can I visit “the story tree”? I’d enjoy seeing it in person.

Thank you,
