"Until the bronze apple tree was put in the right place, I didn't believe it really happened. We started dreaming about creating a theatre director's memorial site in Valmiera in 2014. We argued, listened to what the art object should look like, what would be the most appropriate for the director's spirit. Aivars Vilipsōns offered his version of Kroder as a fruit tree and this is how the Kroder’s Prize appeared, the visualization of which in the urban environment is now Kroder's apple tree on Ziloņu Street,” says Evita Sniedze, the director of the Valmiera Theater and a member of the Kroder’s Foundation.
