Take a Spin

Climb inside Los Trompos (The Spinning Tops) for a bright, colorful, whirling ride or work together to get them spinning for new friends. Los Trompos installation is art that’s just made for play.

Relaxing at Los Trompos

It’s twirl time

Climb inside for a whirl or work together to get everyone spinning. Los Trompos is inspired by the shapes and movement of classic toy tops and crafted in part by fabric woven in a traditional style by Mexican artisans. This spring, dress up in vivid butterfly costumes and flutter around Los Trompos and our blossoming pollinator gardens.

Inspired by traditional Latin American design, architecture and folk art, Esrawe’s works are playful, sometimes humorous, and organic. Cadena’s collaborative designs explore the boundaries between art and science.
