Light It Up
The Chicago Botanic Garden has new magic for the holidays with the introduction of Lightscape, an enchanting, after-dark, illuminated trail inspired by and created just for the Garden. Lightscape is making its U.S. debut this month with immersive experiences and artistic installations by international artists. Along a mile-long path, the night will come alive with color, imagination, and sound, from a playful choir of singing trees to a spectacular waterfall of light. Attendees will find themselves in the center of it all—stepping through a tunnel of light, walking among immersive ribbons of light, enjoying a stunning festive finale, and toasting marshmallows over a fire. Lightscape opens on Friday, November 22, and runs on select dates through Sunday, January 5. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit chicagobotanic.org/lightscape.
