These squirrels will be placed throughout the grounds for guests to enjoy as part of their garden experience. The exhibit is included in garden admission and FREE for Airlie members.

Ten talented artists, or teams of artists, have been selected to decorate, paint or otherwise adorn one of our over-sized, fiberglass squirrel models. Learn more about these artists and their creations before the exhibit opens!
