The trees were designed by a variety of art institutions, both local and national, including dance and ballet companies, museums, symphonies and cultural programs.

The vibrant and elegant trees will be on display through Dec. 4 in South Coast Plaza’s open-air pavilion near its north parking structure.

The trees will be auctioned off at SCPARTS.givesmart.com – some include gifts such as tickets and subscriptions or gift cards – and everything raised will go back to that arts organization sponsoring that tree, organizers said. Plus judges will be picking three winners that will receive an addition contribution – first place receives $10,000.
