Spring Swings is an interactive outdoor exhibit across eight beautiful acres of Longue Vue gardens!

(This exhibit has now closed. See below for photos and artist information.)

We enjoyed a successful exhibit opening on Saturday, March 26 with help from our Junior Curators who assisted with

installing swings across the gardens, gave guided tours of the swing sites, and even painted some swings of their own!

These creative, fully functional swings were designed by local artists and creators.

See below for a list of swings, where they were located in the gardens, and the fabulous artists, Junior Curators, and community members who created them!
