Summertime is the best time to “Celebrate the Children.” The exuberant art exhibit at the Dallas Arboretum does just that. Bring your own family out to interact with delightful sculptures by Gary Lee Price. The playful sculptures are on display at the botanical garden through October.

Summer at the Arboretum brings family-friendly activities to the lush Dallas Arboretum gardens. Price’s sculptures, modeled after his own family (nine children and 16 grandchildren) are presented by Reliant.

Celebrate the Children includes over 25 bronze sculptures.

“Circle of Peace” shows kids playing an old-fashioned game. Generations of children have played “Ring Around the Rosie.” Nearby, children turn cartwheels while another scene shows a mother playing with her toddler. “Celebration” is an 11-foot sculpture that shows children joyously celebrating life as they soar around the globe.

Dallas Arboretum Board Chairman Alan Walne told parkcitiespeople.com, “Thousands of Gary Lee Price’s sculptures are on display in public and private collections throughout the world. And now the public can see many of them up close. You may remember his ‘Great Contributors’ bronze collection at the Dallas Arboretum in 2016. They were so popular that we are excited to welcome him back, as he captures the true essence of passion in every sculpture.”

All Price sculptures on display are for sale to the public. Since they can range in size up to 1,300 pounds, most of us would be happy with one of the smaller versions available in Hoffman Family Gift Store. Dallas Arboretum receives a portion of the proceeds.

The exhibition also helps celebrate the fifth year of the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden. This eight-acre scientific garden teaches children about nature. They also learn life and earth sciences from the garden. Its 17 indoor-outdoor galleries provide a unique blend of technology with natural elements. The displays revolve around STEAM—science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics.
