Come Out and Play

When: Sat., Sept. 2, 12-8 p.m. 2017

p>This outdoor sculpture exhibit has taken place annually, on a seventeen-acre horse farm outside Carrboro, since 2002, when four sculptors installed their work there as a healing gesture for those whose lives were lost or irrevocably changed by 9/11. Come Out and Play has since become a tradition that provides an opportunity for Triangle-area sculptors to share and sell their creations in a wide-open space. Free "picnic" receptions run on Saturday afternoons well into September, when the furnace of late summer is abating, making conditions ideal for gamboling among the works (perhaps even with your leashed dog in tow) and enjoying some eats. The offerings from more than eighty participants include everything from elegantly rendered Lowland gorillas wrought from interconnected metal squares to abstract representations and whimsical found-object creations. They all acquire an additional dimension when viewed in splendid natural light, and the artists hold on to every dollar they earn for the work they sell. —David Klein
