The mosaic dragon sculpture has delighted children in Middle Tennessee since it was installed in 1981.  It was the result of a community project led by national artist Pedro Silva and involved hundreds of volunteers of all ages coming together to create the colorful mosaic façade.  

The dragon has been fenced off and closed to little climbers since May 2016. 

The ceremony begins at 4 p.m. Sunday. Fannie Mae Dees Park is located at 2400 Blakemore Avenue.
