San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden Nature Lights Exhibit Now Open
Written by: Victoria Camacho
Last week, we made our way to San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden to experience “Nature Nights.” This remarkable exhibit is on display now through January 8, 2022.
This magical interactive experience has been curated by a group of sensational artists including: Bryn Forbes, illuminated sculptures byMichael Reddell, and artistic lighting of garden areas by Kody Cava throughout the eight-acre
portion of the 150-acre Garden.
Hosted: Thank you San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden for inviting Queen Bee Latina to experience Nature lights. All opinions are my own.
The exhibition features enthralling moving digital imagery captured by artist Bryn Forbes,
projected upon the garden’s hillsides and the surrounding buildings and artifacts, creating an
experience like no other. Michael Reddell’s illuminated wire sculptures adds to the festivities
by capturing the essence of humanity. Artistic lighting of the garden areas is strategically
crafted by celebrated artist Kody Cava.
We truly felt transported into a magical land, and for a moment we forgot about our troubles. The artists have created something unique and special for the public to enjoy. I highly recommend visiting with the entire family.
Additionally, there will be a variety of culinary delights, regional wine, and beer available for enjoyment.
The children section of the exhibit was artistically orchestrated with lights and detailed with a special area for meditation. There is also a wonderful, “Make a Wish Tree.”
