Come Out and Play 2016 Slideshow
For the 15th year in a row, sculptors displayed their creations at the Come Out and Play sculpture show at JimGin farm, just outside Carrboro. Sculptures of many media and form, created by over 70 artists, dotted the landscape of this 17-acre horse farm. Artists keep 100 percent of the proceeds.

This show began in 2002 as part of a group of shows put on by Debbie Meyer, Jackie Helvey, Hunter Levinsohn, Anke Gassen, and Hollie Taylor, to honor the victims of 9/11. Attendees, who loved seeing sculpture in an outdoor setting, and artists, who often don't have a place to display larger sculptures, asked for it to continue. Over 2,000 people attended this year's show.
