Inspired by the great success of The Lawn on D’s acclaimed Swing Time sculpture, our team has scouted out some of the country’s most innovative play sculptures, games and activities. There is a global movement of designers, architects, artists & educators focusing on play for kids and adults; they take their play seriously and so do we.
On July 18, 2015, from 12-5pm, Play Day will transform The Lawn on D into a large-scale play installation designed to inspire and delight patrons of all ages.* Play Day will feature games, crafts, interactive sculptures and works of art. It is an opportunity for those young and old to enjoy an afternoon of imaginative, spirited activity, and to reconnect with what it means to be playful.
Play Day will highlight the work of both local and worldwide talent. Boston-based contributors include major institutions such as Boston Children’s Museum and the Museum of Science, as well as rising design stars such as IK Studio, Virginia Melnyk and helloeverything. Additionally, Play Day will showcase the work of the San Francisco-based Rebar Group, one of the pioneers in the field of creative play.
Come out and experience the importance of play in your life – and have a lot of fun as we transform the LOD into a playscape for everyone.
*Rain Date is July 19, 2015
Play Day is presented in collaboration with the Boston Children’s Museum.
12:00 PM - 5:00 PM
