Not to be missed is this year’s featured art exhibition “Mark di Suvero at Fairchild,” consisting of five monumental sculptures uniquely placed in the lowlands. A new and exciting installation this month is a work by Belgian artist Kris Martin entitled “For Whom… ,” a massive, three ton swinging bell, and later in January, Fairchild will once again present a selection of sculptures throughout the Garden by Fernando Botero. All exhibitions run through May 31st. See it all on a Starlight tram tour at 6:30 or 7:30! Admission includes full access to the Garden and exhibitions. The cost is $10 for Fairchild members, $5 for member children age 6-17; $15 for non-members, $8 for non-member children age 6-17, and free for children 5 and under.
