CHEEKWOOD CALLS FOR SCARECROWS DESIGN ENTRIES
NASHVILLE, TN, July 12, 2012 – Cheekwood is pleased to announce the fifth annual exhibition, Scarecrows, on display September 22 – October 31, 2012. Dozens of fabulous, weird, funny, and traditional scarecrows will lurk along Cheekwood’s paths. The community is invited to participate by designing one of the many scarecrows that will be displayed.
Participants who are selected will receive the framework for the Scarecrow and will be responsible for construction, installation, and removal of each structure. Registration Forms are due by August 27.

The history of scarecrows dates back 3000 years. Farmers still use scarecrows all over the world. During the growing season scarecrows still stand in fields around the world and each fall many communities have scarecrow contests. Cheekwood’s Scarecrows is already a fall tradition for Middle Tennessee families!
