Enjoy all that Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park has to offer during spring break week!

The annual Fred & Dorothy Fichter Butterflies Are Blooming exhibition at Meijer Gardens is the largest temporary tropical butterfly exhibition in the nation. Thousands of tropical butterflies from around the world fly freely in the Lena Meijer Tropical Conservatory. Throughout the exhibition, there is special educational programming and the Lena Meijer Children’s Garden offers butterfly-themed activities.

We are also honored to display a selection of 70 works from American sculptor Beverly Pepper. These works range from the early 1950s through present day and are part of Drawn Into Form: Sixty Years of Drawings and Prints by Beverly Pepper. From sketches capturing scenes of everyday life and landscape views to abstract explorations of space and form to technical drawings and independent prints, the exhibition will evidence one of the most profound artistic careers in recent memory.

While you’re here, don’t miss our newest hands-on experience for all ages, Inside/Outside: An Interactive Sculpture Experience for Families. Each of the educational stations includes a hands-on activity that underscores concepts of featured sculptures. Inside/Outside: An Interactive Sculpture Experience for Families is yet another way that we encourage children to bond with sculpture and foster a lifelong enjoyment of the arts!
