This exhibition on the great body of work Michael Graves has generated throughout his career is impressive. There is a time line illustrating his accomplishments. One of the first sterling silver tea sets he created for Alessi--$48,000 retail!

During the summer the park is open for extended hours. If you show up right before dusk you can experience each exhibit twice: once in the daylight and again with the park's lighting after dark.

We drove through the area on the way to Rat's restaurant (outstanding fine dining), and it was just an awesome surprise. We had no idea about this area until we drove through. It is really amazing at night.
