Flowers power the night this summer as the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park becomes the canvas for a spectacular light art installation to honor San Francisco’s city-wide celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love.
Developed in partnership with San Francisco Recreation and Parks by Illuminate, the nonprofit arts group behind the famed Bay Lights, and Obscura Digital, a world-renowned creative studio specializing in large scale light-based art, the installation uses gobo projectors to transform the all-white landmark with a series of exquisitely illuminated scenes inspired by the rare tropical flowers within and the legacy of San Francisco’s flower children.
The outside of the Conservatory of Flowers will be illuminated at dusk, and continue to run starting at the top of each hour and 30 minute mark. The best viewing areas are on JFK Drive and in Conservatory Valley. Parking is available along JFK Drive.
