Lighting Science Creates Interactive Exhibition for Southeast’s Most Prestigious Botanical Garden
The Unique Solutions Group was once again requested by the Atlanta Botanical Garden to partner up for the garden’s seasonal lighting exhibit. This year, the “Garden Lights, Holiday Nights” exhibit will be illuminated with over 1.5 million lights transforming the grounds into a wonderland. The original LED installation created for the Great Lawn with Lighting Science will serve as the finale to the exhibit. The topiary forms which vary in size and shape also change hues to classic holiday music in a beautifully choreographed show.
As this is the second year of the show, it was important to the Atlanta Botanical Garden that it be even more spectacular than the year before. The orbs on the Great Lawn use a mere 10 watts of energy and cast over 16 million different colors.
This year Lighting Science has also lit the garden’s landmark 50-foot-tall Dawn Redwood tree as well as the Dorthy Chapman Fuqua Conservatory with multi-colored hues. This lighting will stay up year round and the colors changed to match the passing seasons and holidays.
A case study on the installation can be found on the Lighting Science website under Resources.
About the Atlanta Botanical Garden’s Show
The show will blanket the Garden’s 30 acres in every shimmering color under the rainbow from November 17 – January 5. New sparkling attractions include spectacular lighting effects casting an icy cool vibe on the “Liquid Lights” in the Cascades Garden, while the “Starry Night Walk,” inspired by Van Gogh’s famous painting, features dozens of swirling stars twinkling along the walkway through the camellias. The Great Lawn will once again be transformed into “Orchestral Orbs” — a one-of-a-kind topiary light show choreographed to holiday music.
Visitors can now meet Lumina in person — the mysteriously beautiful sprite who flitters about the Garden spreading holiday magic to children. Find enchanting frog elves (frelves) hidden along the paths and look for a bejeweled dragonfly, dozens more lighted trees and shrubs in gorgeous colors palettes and plenty of high tech wows throughout the conservatories For ticket information go to: https://tickets.atlantabotanicalgarden.org/
