Still plenty of time to journey over to Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art to see their latest exhibit Jaume Plensa: Human Landscape (ends November 1). Throughout the 55-acre estate, nine large-scale outdoor sculptures, indoor installations & sculptures, and a selection of works on paper make up this wondrous exhibit. This is the perfect opportunity for families to take a journey, witness great art, expand the imagination, and have fun while doing it.
In honor of the new Jaume Plensa: Human Landscape exhibit, and the artist’s Spanish heritage, Cheekwood is offering Spanish Nights throughout the season. Families can explore his art both in the gardens and the museum while experiencing the sounds and culture of Spain. Every event promises live music, performances, and so much more. Click here for the full schedule.
For the adults, make sure to check out Spanish Wine & Tapas. Each night (see select dates) you can enjoy fantastic tapas as a certified wine specialist leads you through five Spanish wines to give you a glimpse inside the wonderfully rich culture of Spain.
Also, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts has teamed up with Cheekwood and will have on display four of the artist’s sculptures. That includes one large-scale sculpture at the entrance. Go check this out before or after you see the main exhibit at Cheekwood and experience it all. Click for more information.
