Cheekwood Seeks Designers For Fairytale Exhibition To Open in Summer 2008


NASHVILLE, TN.- Art and architecture merge with fairytales in this open call for designers to create storybook settings for Cheekwood’s Summer Garden Installation for 2008, Happily Ever After. Building on the success of Once Upon a Garden, Cheekwood’s 2007 summer exhibition, Happily Ever After will consist of 8 designed storybook settings in the landscape. In addition to the magical settings, last year’s installation offered Cheekwood the opportunity to offer rich programming opportunities that appealed to a diverse audience.

The vision for this project is an exciting, whimsical, storybook wonderland that captures the imagination of our young and young at heart visitors and draws them into the magical world of books. In addition to the interactive qualities of these stories and their places, Happily Ever After also promotes literacy and activities that can take place in groups or with families.

Stories include: Rumpelstiltskin, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, Sword and the Stone, Three Billy Goats Gruff, Little Red Riding Hood, Princess and the Pea, Three Little Pigs, and Rapunzel.

Happily Ever After opens Memorial Day weekend and closes September 7. Designers interested in participating should call Leigh Anne Lomax, Botanical Garden and Horticulture Manager, at 615-353-6969 or email at lalomax@cheekwood.org.

Cheekwood inspires and educates by making art, horticulture and nature accessible to a diverse community. Cheekwood is located at 1200 Forrest Park Drive in Nashville, 8 miles southwest of downtown Nashville. Open Tuesday – Saturday 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. For further information call 615-356-8000 or visit www.cheekwood.org.
