BG&H: Easter Egg Hunt and Breakfast with the Easter Bunny

Hop on down to the Gardens and join us for some “eggstra” special Easter fun! On March 24, Bellingrath will host its annual Easter Egg Hunt on the Great Lawn. Thousands of Easter eggs will decorate the luxurious lawn for children to scurry and collect. There will be special hunts for different age groups as well as prizes, candy and “eggtivities,” which makes this a perfect family outing.

Children are invited to participate in one of three Egg Hunts depending on their age:

Ages 3 and under: A continuous Easter Egg Hunt from 9 to 10:30 AM
Ages 4-6: Easter Egg Hunt from 10 to 10:15 AM
Ages 7-11: Easter Egg Hunt from 10:15 to 10:30 AM

Please plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your child’s Easter Egg Hunt to allow plenty of time to walk from the Entrance Building to the Great Lawn. We ask that children bring their own basket or bag to collect eggs and treats.

Games and craft projects to stimulate children’s creativity will follow on Live Oak Plaza throughout the morning from 9 AM until noon. A professional photographer will be available to take children’s portraits with the Easter Bunny in the Gift Shop Greenhouse. Click here for pricing information.

MMofA: do it

do it began in Paris in 1993 as a conversation between curator Hans Ulrich Obrist and artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier. They were curious to see what would happen if they started an exhibition that could constantly generate new versions of itself. To test the idea, they invited 12 artists to propose artworks based on written “scores” or instructions that can be openly interpreted every time they are presented. The instructions were then translated into 9 different languages and circulated internationally as a book.
