Take a Walk on The Carell Trail

Rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit through a Self-Guided Twilight Mindfulness Walk on the Ann & Monroe Carell Jr. Family Sculpture Trail. These self-guided walks include prompts to encourage mindfulness while also tracking 3,000 steps toward your step goal.

Did you know we also have sculptures in the gardens that aren’t on The Carell Trail? Don’t miss the newly-conserved Eric Orr’s Cheekwood Prime Matter sculpture where water and fire present a most unique art experience on Thursday nights from 5 – 9 PM. To access Eric Orr’s Cheekwood Prime Matter, exit through the back of the Frist Learning Center and follow the lit pathway down the Frist Learning Center Lawn. *Please Note: The Cedar Loop is not lit at night.

Rejuvenate Your Mind, Body, and Spirit

With 55 acres of breathing room, Cheekwood serves as a refuge to rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit. We’re offering new Wellness 360 programs for Therapeutic Thursday Nights. Celebrate the longer days with a yoga class at dusk hosted by Triluna Wellness or join The Yogi Bassist for a 60-minute sunset sound bath meditation experience.

Stroll Through Larger-than-life Sculptures

From acclaimed artist Sean Kenney and produced by Imagine Exhibitions, Sean Kenney’s Nature POP! Made with LEGO® Bricks features 38 sculptures made from more than 800,000 LEGO® Bricks. Presenting a playful spin on traditional sculptural art, this award-winning exhibition showcases the beauty of nature in a way you’ve never seen before!⁠
