One of the ultimate most favorite family events is the Nasher Sculpture Center’s The Great Create. It not only turns the Center’s lush grounds into a colorful playground with food and music for kids, it also has pop-up workshops with some of the area’s most outstanding artists.
This year’s Co-Chairs Macey and Steve Davis, Nicole and Justin Small and Meredith and Scott Wallace have quite a lineup of talent for the Nasher fun(d)raiser. They include Chesley Antoinette, The Color Condition, Ryan Goolsby, Kyle Hobratschk, Shelby David Meier, Nic Nicosia, Tom Sachs, Allison V. Smith and Giovanni Valderas.
From 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, April 29, the artists will set up along the walkways for kids to try out their handiwork and learn about different forms of art.
The activities are geared for munchkins 12 and under. Oldtimers (13 and older) are able to be Art Ambassadors, who can assist the artists and the wee ones.
If you don’t have a kiddo, borrow one. It’s as much fun for the adults as the children.
Tickets are available here! Upper level packages include perks like invites to the patron party, “a special family photography opportunity with Allison V. Smith” and VIP Early Admission.
BTW, proceeds from the event go to the Nasher’s youth education programs that “account for more than 36% of the Center’s attendance each year, allowing many students and families to experience the Nasher at no cost.”
