Family Fun Tuesdays at Caponi Art Park

Tuesdays June 3 – August 26, 2014 • 10 – 11am
Admission is free with suggested $4 donation per person

I jotted down a few notes after I visited Caponi Art Park with two of my girls for the first time last summer: “It was not the kind of park my 4-year-old daughter imagined we’d be going to when we set out that morning, but she was singing its praises by the time we were on our way out. The importance of creativity and nature in play is not lost on her.”

caponi art parkWe had gone with the purpose of checking out Caponi’s Family Fun Tuesdays, a program that will rev up again next week (June 3, to be exact) for it’s 16th season. The series makes a variety of cultural – and educational – performers accessible to families in an environment that inspires imagination. At right, my girls are taking in a West African folk tale by storyteller Jerry Blue.

You can find the full Family Fun Tuesdays lineup here. Plan to spend time afterwards exploring some of the 60 acres that make up this woodland sculpture garden. Art pops up in unexpected places, down meandering paths, and begs for interpretation!

Saturday, May 31, Caponi Art Park will host its annual Spring Open House from 1 – 4pm. Live music and a children’s art activity will promote Caponi’s September Bluegrass Festival.
