The fifth annual The Great Create is presented by The Tot.

Inaugurated in 2013, The Great Create family fundraiser transforms the Nasher Garden into an interactive, art-filled space for kids and parents. Children can put their hands to work in engaging projects under the instruction of Dallas-based and national artists. The event also features live entertainment and kid-friendly food. Friends and Supporters of the Nasher Sculpture Center are invited to bring their children, their friends’ children, or sponsor a family. The event is geared toward children 12 and under, with teens ages 13 and up invited to serve as “Art Ambassadors” to assist the artists. Children 2 and under attend for free.
