Due to popular demand, the SF Recreation and Park Department is extending the
popular illumination of the historic Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park
through Nov. 26.
The landmark became a canvas for a public art installation called “Photo synthesis,”
designed to honor San Francisco’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of the
“summer of love.”
The art project is presented by Illuminate, a non-profit arts group, and Obscura Digital, a
creative studio specializing in large-scale, light-based art.
The installation at the Conservatory of Flowers represents the world’s most sophisticated
use of gobo projectors to transform the all-white 138-year-old structure with a series of
illuminated scenes inspired by the rare tropical flowers within the Conservatory and the
legacy of San Francisco’s “flower children.”
The artwork is on view nightly from sundown until midnight.
