Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden presents "Celebrate the Children"
Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden will present "Celebrate the Children," an art exhibition designed and created by Gary Lee Price. Guests can interact with beautiful, hand-crafted bronze sculptures of children, which are displayed throughout the garden. The exhibition, presented by Reliant, is the focal point of Summer at the Arboretum that features special events and Family Fun Fridays from June to August.
Created by Price, "Celebrate the Children" features more than 25 different, hand-produced, bronze sculptures, many of which are of his own children. The 11-foot sculpture, "Celebration!" features joyous children celebrating life and soaring around the globe. The exhibition encourages guests to revisit childhood memories such as singing Ring-Around-The-Rosie in "Circle of Peace" with five children or playing in the grass near one of the four "Cartwheel" statues. The pieces range from 2 to 7.5 feet tall with one sculpture weighing more than 1,300 pounds.
All of the Price sculptures on display are available for purchase, along with smaller versions in the Hoffman Family Gift Store. The Dallas Arboretum receives a portion of the proceeds.
