Night Bloom Shines Brighter at Conservatory of Flowers
Light and sound experience returns brighter and bigger for the holidays
Night Bloom, a light and sound experience that debuted at the Conservatory of Flowers last winter, returns shining brighter this holiday season after a successful run in 2018. This year, more lights, immersive soundscapes and art from Oakland-based artists HYBYCOZO will dazzle and amaze. The nighttime exhibition has expanded to additional nights and will run from November 22, 2019 through January 5, 2020. Tickets are available at www.conservatoryofflowers.org/nightbloom
Mesmerizing visuals, powered by illumination and inspired by the Conservatory’s botanical collection, will celebrate the rainforest after dark. Oakland-based artists HYBYCOZO will display popular artwork and create new Conservatory-inspired art to be presented in the HYBYCOZO Hall. Also being introduced is the Bloom Lounge where guests 21 and over can enjoy complimentary food and drink in an illuminated, inflatable dome.
“The response from the community was overwhelming last year,” said Matthew Stephens, Director of the Conservatory of Flowers. “Favorites from last year will return, but we have added new elements and many more memorable moments. Our goal is to make Night Bloom an annual holiday tradition.”
Night Bloom includes site-specific installations dispersed throughout the Conservatory’s galleries, with an illuminated Conservatory and interactive displays outside. Inspired by the institution’s internationally renowned botanical collection, the exhibit is experienced following a meandering path where guests will see the Conservatory in a new light.
Tickets for Night Bloom are now on sale. The limited engagement begins November 22, 2019 and runs until January 5, 2020 on select evenings from 5-11 p.m. Ticket prices are $29 for general admission (9+), $75 for Bloom Lounge (21+), $14 for members, and free for children 8 and under.
