features over 50 floral interpretations of art in the Museum’s permanent collection. During the four-day festival, you may be inspired to take in a presentation, attend a workshop, or find just the right gift in the Museum Store. You’ll have a chance to explore the floral concoctions at Sip and Iris and to vote for your favorite design. We will have a guided tour for this exhibit.The last 2 years this has sold out. What is Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park?
Imagine a place where vibrant color, dynamic motion, and rhythmic sound dazzle the senses, a public park and outdoor museum where local community and international visitors alike can gather around the iconic, monumental, wind-powered sculptures of world-renowned artist and engineer Vollis Simpson.
This one-of-a-kind art park in the heart of Historic Downtown Wilson, NC will provide fascinating artistic, educational, and recreational opportunities at the intersection of art and science. We invite you to explore our vision and to join the effort to realize this significant creative placemaking and arts-driven economic development project.Want to go? Click here to register
