Crystal Bridges’ second-annual Trick Art Treat event will take place this Sunday, October 27 from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. We encourage guests of all ages to enjoy Halloween-related activities at this family-friendly event, surrounded by art, nature, and fun for everyone to enjoy.
This event is completely free and open for all ages, taking place in the North Forest next to the museum. As you plan your trip, here are some tips and tidbits to help you know what to expect at Trick Art Treat:
Kids and adults alike are encouraged to wear their Halloween costume to Trick Art Treat! We love seeing superheroes, dinosaurs, fairies, and everything in between, including costumes inspired by Crystal Bridges artworks. Only thing: if you are planning to wear a mask, make sure you can remove it.
If you’re coming to the museum for Trick Art Treat, park in the additional parking lot at the top of the hill (across the street from the Amazeum). From there, cross the street to enter the North Forest and walk down the path. Once you come across Tony Tasset’s Deer sculpture, you’ve made it!
Trick Art Treat will offer mini pumpkins for kids and families to decorate and take home! Look for the stations in the North Forest. Pumpkins will be available while supplies last.
There will be six candy stations set up throughout the North Forest. Kids are encouraged to practice their best “Trick-or-Treat” phrases in advance of Halloween and grab candy at each station while supplies last.
Is your family’s Halloween costume coordination on point? Even if it’s not, take advantage of our exciting Photo BOO-th and take a family (or friend) Halloween photo to make lasting memories.
StoneLion Puppet Theatre presents Boneyard Jamboree, a non-scary Halloween puppet show happening at 1:30 and 2:30 p.m. at Trick Art Treat. According to StoneLion, “Pumpkin Man, the Invisible Couple, spooky scary skeletons, Martians, and ghosts all make an appearance in this cabaret show full of trick marionettes that are a sure treat!”
Yard games such as Cornhole/Baggo, and more will also be available to keep the kids active during your visit in the forest.
Trick Art Treat is a perfect opportunity to take advantage of being outside in the North Forest, enjoying the fall weather and art sculptures that adorn the forest. Take some time to admire and interact with sculptures such as Tempest by Brian Tolle (pictured above), Tony Tasset’s Deer, Yayoi Kusama’s Flowers That Bloom Now, Nancy Rubins’s Monochrome II, and more!
