Through October, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden will “Celebrate the Children” through an art exhibition of beautiful, hand-crafted bronze sculptures of children by Gary Lee Price, which are displayed throughout the garden. The exhibit features more than 25 different, hand-produced, bronze sculptures, many of which are of his own children. I mean, how special is that?
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 lbs. You’re going to love getting spring photos at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. The “Celebrate the Children” exhibit runs April 15-October 15.
We had fun exploring the garden looking for all of Gary Lee Price’s statues. He’s been creating bronze sculptures for more than 35 years! Here are just a few of them we found:

We had fun exploring the garden looking for all of Price’s statues. He told us that art is therapeutic for him and also how he became inspired to create these beautiful statues.
This sculpture reminds me to Savor the Days…
