The Great Create 2018

April 29, 2018 from 1:00 – 4:00 pm

The Nasher Sculpture Center, along with Chairs Macey and Steve Davis, Nicole and Justin Small, and Meredith and Scott Wallace, announced the Nasher’s sixth annual family fundraising event, The Great Create,  will take place on Sunday, April 29, 2018 from 1-4 pm. This annual event aims to engage families’ artistic sides while raising essential funds for the Nasher’s educational initiatives year after year.

The Great Create is a celebration of youth art education and appreciation featuring a fun-filled afternoon of hands-on art activities and workshops in Nasher Garden led by artists from around the world, as well as live entertainment and kid-friendly food. The program is geared toward children 12 and under; teens ages 13 and up are invited to serve as “Art Ambassadors,” assisting the artists and younger attendees.

All proceeds from the event will enable the Nasher Sculpture Center to continue providing exceptional youth education programs throughout the year, such as the 3:01 Club After-school Program, Summer Institute for Teens and free student tours. Education programs account for more than 36% of the Center’s attendance each year, allowing many students and families to experience the Nasher at no cost.
