Featuring more than 120 sculptures by artist and GFS founder Seward Johnson, The Retrospective will include work in every indoor gallery, and many new works out in the park, including the much-anticipated monumental land sculpture titled, "The Awakening,” sited in The Meadow. Joining his internationally admired large-scale works such as "Forever Marilyn" will be dozens of key works comprising the "Icons Revisited," "Beyond The Frame," and "Celebrating The Familiar" series. These notable sculptures will be joined by Mr. Johnson's lesser known but perhaps most intimate work—a collection of trays upon which he has painted landscapes and moments of great personal meaning to him. Seward Johnson: The Retrospective represents nearly 50 years of work, and is a culmination of the prodigious whimsy and humanity of this extraordinary man.

Jam along to this powerful, soul-infused rock and roll band founded by Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman featuring twin lead vocals from multi-platinum recording artist Joan Osborne and singer-songwriter Jackie Greene who also plays guitar and keyboards. Rounding out the group are lead guitarist Tom Bukovac and bassist Nick Govrik. Trigger Hippy’s first recorded material, a self-titled limited edition 10-inch EP, was released in November 2013. The four songs on the EP were written collectively by the band who draw much of their musical inspiration “…from the members’ shared love of R&B and soul—lots of Al Green and Stax, some old blues covers and a little bit of Led Zeppelin and Little Feat thrown in for good measure” as described by The Memphis Commercial Appeal.
