The Garden and Glass exhibit is due to open in April and just broke ground at the end of August, so construction has been rapid. One crew of workers was leaving their shift and another had just begun as evening settled in on the very busy work site. The crew said the project is coming together well and that there have been no injuries. It is a beautiful structure, and I can't wait to see it finished with the garden installation and all the light and color it will bring. Meanwhile, across campus wedged beside Key Arena, the Children's Theater and Fisher Pavilion, the new skate park area is providing some alternative fun space for active youth to work on their fluid moves. Hopefully a few more active areas for children, youth and families will be developed nearby to provide safe, fun alternative attractions that add variety to the many performing arts, science and cultural offerings currently on site.
