Last summer, the Conservatory of Flowers wowed us with their 1960s-themed, psychedelic light show on the greenhouse facade. And while we were sad to see the Summer of Love show finally end its run, the Conservatory is back with a brand-new installation this winter.
Developed in partnership with Lightswitch, "Night Bloom" will debut at the Conservatory of Flowers on December 2. Colorful lights and sounds will transform the iconic San Francisco landmark into a glowing landscape of interactive and immersive experiences. Think Museum of Ice Cream ... only with lights and plants. As you wander through the renowned botanical collection, you'll come across a variety of rooms filled with magical and fantastic light art like cotton candy sunsets, rare and unusual flowers blooming in the moonlight and fireflies twinkling in the lush jungle.
“Night Bloom is an incredibly exciting reason to visit Golden Gate Park after dark. This stunning intersection of art, technology and nature is a feast for the senses and allows visitors to enjoy the Conservatory of Flowers in a whole new way,” said Phil Ginsburg, SF Rec and Park General Manager.
“Visitors of all ages will leave with seeing the Conservatory of Flowers and our incredible plant collection in a new light” added Matthew Stephens, Director of the Conservatory of Flowers.
The exhibition will run on select evenings from December 2, 2018 through January 6, 2019 from 5–11pm. Tickets ($20–$27 for adults) are now available at conservatoryofflowers.org/nightbloom.
