    The Great Create FAQs

    What happens at The Great Create?

    The Great Create is an afternoon of family, fun, and art-making, all in support of a great cause. Ten professional artists from North Texas and beyond host art-making stations, each with a one-of-a-kind project, throughout the Nasher Garden. There’s music, a dance floor, and other fun activities as well. The galleries are open, so you and your family can explore the current exhibition together. And family-friendly sandwiches, snacks, and drinks will be available for all attendees (as well as beer and wine for the adults). All activities, food, and drinks are included in the price of your family underwriting package or ticket.

    Do children need a ticket to The Great Create?

    Children three and older are required to have a ticket to The Great Create. Children two and under attend for free with a paying adult. Proceeds from family underwriting packages and tickets support the Nasher’s education programs.

    Will I receive physical tickets for the event?   

    No. When you arrive, you’ll check in with event staff at the Nasher. There, you’ll receive your event program, and children will each receive their t-shirts and tote bags.  

    What’s the parking situation?   

    You will have several options to park on the day of The Great Create. Complimentary valet will be available at the Nasher throughout the afternoon. If you are a Nasher Member, you are entitled to free self-parking, subject to availability, at the Dallas Museum of Art garage. Finally, you can also self-pay to park at the Trammell Crow Center parking garage, just across the street from the Nasher.  

    What does VIP Early Entry include?   

    Family underwriters and sponsors at the Silver Sculptors ($2,500) level and above can start the party early at 12:30 p.m., as well as enjoy an extra activity by one of the featured artists, at The Great Create.
