The Art of Play

The Art of Play

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden will invite guests of all ages to come outside and play! The Art of Play transforms the Garden into a vibrant canvas where visitors will express themselves in a palette of playful activities. Interactive sculpture, innovative programming, multisensory activities and Pop-up Play Stations, all curated to engage imaginations and inspire flights of fancy, will awaken the artist in everyone. Six Virginia artists have been commissioned to create whimsical installations that invite adults and children alike to engage in the creative process — and experience nature anew. Sit astride a life-size wooden horse, play on a space-age seesaw, look through the lens of a giant kaleidoscope, or make a giant impression on a pin-toy. This is art that’s meant to be played with! $13 adults $11 seniors 55+ $8 Children (age 3-12) Free for Children under 3 Free for Garden Members
