Winter Carnival fun at Lynden Sculpture Garden Feb. 11 WINTER IS A GREAT TIME to visit the Lynden Sculpture Garden, located a short drive north of downtown at 2145 W. Brown Deer Rd. The lake is available for ice skating, depending on weather conditions. And family activities are the focus of the Second Annual Winter Carnival on Sunday, Feb. 11, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The event is free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden. Family passes are $15 in advance by calling 414-446-8794 or $20 at the door. Fun is the focus of the day, with outdoor art-making, studio activities, tours, tree-walks and other winter activities as weather permits. A garden-wide Capture the Flag tournament with artist-made flags includes a "half-time" performance and an art-related tailgate activity. Screenings are planned for the conference room as well as Valentine- making in the art studio (morning) and candle- making (afternoon). In a repeat of last year's crowd favorite, the pond will be painted. Kids of all ages are invited to watch or par- ticipate on foot, skis, snow- shoes or skates (bring your own).
