Nature of the Game, Now – April 5

Do you want to play a game? If so, make plans and head on over to a new interactive exhibit at the gardens: Nature of the Game, Now thru April 5, 2020.

This incredible exhibit is taking some of our favorite childhood games to an all new level. Nature of the Game was created in collaboration with Reiman Gardens and Iowa State University Architecture lecturer and artist, Reinaldo Correa, and his interdisciplinary team of design and engineering students. It is an amazing hands-on experience taking childhood games and turning them into fun discoveries about the wonders of nature. Come play with giant chess pieces, but wait, its food web chess.  Find a partner and challenge them to Connect Food, which is a life-size Connect4 with a twist. There are scavenger hunts searching biomes of different environments inspired by I-Spy and Consequence of our ecosystem based on Kerplunk and there’s more! All ages will have a “ball” playing!  Are you game?

Admission to Nature of the Game exhibit is included with daytime garden admission:
$10 adult
$5 child (ages 4- 17 years)
Free admission for Leu Members and children 3 years of age and younger.

Thank you to all the sponsors!
