Greenslade's Garden GoblinFest

In October 2011, artist Forrest Greenslade worked with the staff of the North Carolina Botanical Garden at GoblinFest. Dr. Greenslade and his Goblin Munchkins taught 20 kids, aged 4 to 10, and their parents to create Goblin masks from concrete, found natural materials, and recycled stuff. The kids made some amazing artwork, which was exhibited in the Wonder Garden, a place where kids of all ages can explore and imagine at the Botanical Garden.
