Whether you’re alone or in a group, observing or participating, there are plenty of ways to enjoy this immersive experience.

Want to infuse your exhibition experience with more light? Check out the in-gallery pop-up store on Fridays to purchase thematic merchandise that will enhance your experience—think hula hoops, LED jewelry, and more!

Connect with friends

Meet other visitors as you experience the wonder of Nature’s Gift—and chat with new friends on beanbag chairs outside the sculpture.

Connect with yourself

Get your Zen on—the space is perfect for enjoying some personal reflection and raising your vibe. Do this as you explore the immersive sculpture or relax in the hammocks hanging in the area known as “The Forest.” In Nature’s Gift, you’re free to find your own path.
