Come Out & Play 2020

About Come Out and Play Sculpture Show

Come Out and Play Sculpture Show was started in 2002 to mark the first anniversary of 9/11 and has continued since then to promote kindness in the world through art and connecting people. My husband, Eric Brantley, and I have hosted the show on our 17-acre farm in Chatham County, JimGin Farm, named for my parents, Jim and Ginger Meyer.

There are numerous artists who show their work, and it is a wonderful collection of the serious and the whimsical, the large and the small, and a great way to show children that art can be an integral part of every day life.

2020 brings a different approach to the show. Several artists who have participated in years past have let me know that if we did not hold the show this year, they still would like to install art in August. So, Eric and I have been brainstorming about a way we can still honor the spirit of the show. Any past participants are welcome to install work, and we will promote the work on the website to sell it and to let everyone experience it somehow. Additionally, we will feature an online catalogue of participating artists. Please check back as we continue to update the site as artists submit photos of their work with a brief description and contact information.

In past years the show has opened with a huge reception on the last Saturday and Sunday in August, noon until dark. It then continued the next four Saturdays, starting at 3 p.m. and ending at dark. It was free to everyone and dogs on leashes were encouraged to attend. There was wonderful art of all media, live music provided by the NC Songwriters Co-op, and food and drink. We hope to be back to our "normal" show next year, but this year we will be online only.
