Great Explorations is an all-day event of music, dance, visual art, theatre and participatory mind and body experiences that will stimulate the imaginations of kids ages 5 to 95.  
This family friendly event features a new workshop in radical map making by artist Michael Parker and music and stories of love, truth, and resistance with vocalist and Tovangar California native Kelly Carabello and the 7th Generation band. Visual artist Nick Rodrigues will bring to life a new participatory kinetic sculpture and special guests Terry Goedel and Tara Goedel Kingi, will perform Native American hoop dancing and will lead workshops. Tara’s daughters Cante and Mareiana, who have been hoop dancing for 2 years, will join this special performance.   
Audiences are invited to stroll and choose their own artistic adventure, discovering each workshop and performance at their own pace. The program is an immersive experience of art and culture for families and individuals of all ages and reimagines the unusual geography of gardens, winding paths, playground, and urban vistas designed by James Corner Field Operations, the creative geniuses behind the High Line in New York.
