Lightscape @ Botanic Garden
November 24 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm$14 – $75
Explore the whimsy of nature in winter through music, light, fire, and color during Lightscape at the Chicago Botanic Garden. Starting November 11 and running on select dates until January 8, 2023, the outdoor illuminated trail will make spirits bright with new light-filled installations along with favorite and reimagined pieces.
“Lightscape is an engaging way to experience nature from a 360-degree perspective—the captivating installations along the trail draw the visitor’s attention to look up and around,” said Jodi Zombolo, associate vice president, Visitor Events & Programs at the Garden. “It provides a festive setting to see the natural world sparkle while creating memories with friends and family.”
This year’s all-new path features vibrant, inventive new works created just for the Garden from international artists, including:
- World premiere of Spark Ballet, from French artist Pitaya: Lights flicker gracefully inside lanterns hanging on trees and placed on the ground, creating an effect as if the lights inside are dancing.
- Flynn, from French artist Pitaya: Luminous objects with ever-changing colors seem to float above the ground in a gentle, almost hypnotic rhythm.
- Starscape, from Australian artist Mandylights: More than 700 handmade acrylic stars create a stunning immersive experience, where brilliant flashes of saturated color animate up and down the length of a 130-foot-long tunnel.
Additionally, favorite installations like the Winter Cathedral will return to the trail along with reimagined versions of the Fire Garden and illumination of the Garden’s popular Elizabeth Hubert Malott Japanese Garden.
