The Bootsie Weiss Children's Garden is one of our favorite places on Fleisher's campus. It is used as a space to gather for classes, events, and as an outdoor exhibition space for young artists.

The garden was named after Fleisher's dedicated board member and celebrated artist, Beverly "Bootsie" Weiss, following her passing in 2009. Bootsie envisioned a place to "celebrate kids' creativity."

Next time you visit Fleisher, be sure to visit the garden and take a look at all of the wonderful mosaics and ceramic pieces made by young artists.
