Kids Already Complaining of Being Bored? Hit the Nasher’s “Day at the Trinity” Celebration at The Trinity River Audubon Center
When it comes to installing compelling, conversation-provoking works of art in outdoor spaces, the brilliant folks at the Nasher set the standard. So we were incredibly excited when the sculpture center announced that they’d be celebrating their 10th anniversary with Nasher XChange, an art exhibition consisting of 10 newly-commissioned public sculptures by contemporary artists at 10 sites throughout our fair city.
The exhibition officially runs from October 19, 2013 through February 16, 2014, but the Nasher is formally kicking things off this Friday, June 14 with their “Day at the Trinity” celebration at the Trinity River Audubon Center. The free event goes from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and I’m thinking it would be the perfect foil for your already stir crazy kiddos.
Here’s a breakdown of the afternoon’s activities…Oh and the first 50 children there receive free Nasher XChange commemorative hard hats.
