A family fundraiser and art discovery day

What

The Great Create is a fun, family-focused fundraising event that engages families’ artistic sides while raising essential support for the Nasher’s diverse and creative annual educational initiatives. This third annual fundraiser, which has sold out every year, is a celebration of youth art education and appreciation featuring a fun-filled afternoon of hands-on activities and workshops in the Nasher garden led by local and national artists, as well as live entertainment and kid-friendly food.

Who

Friends and supporters of the Nasher
600 friends and supporters of the Nasher sculpture center are invited to bring their children, their friend’s 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 and younger attendees.

Family co-chairs
Courtney and Jeff Sinelli and their children Story and Sky
Meredith Land Moore and Xan Moore and their children McCall and Alexander

Why 

All proceeds from the event will directly benefit the Nasher Sculpture Center, bolstering the museum’s efforts to provide outstanding youth education programs throughout the year, such as the 3:01 Club after-school program, Summer Institute for Teens and free student tours. Education programs account for more than 33% of the center’s attendance each year, enabling many students and families to experience the Nasher at no cost. Your valuable support furthers the Nasher Sculpture Center’s ongoing mission of serving as a catalyst for the study and appreciation of modern and contemporary sculpture.
