Night Bloom at the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers

December 2, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - January 6, 2019 @ 11:00 pm

| Free – $39

Step into a world unlike any other in Night Bloom, a nighttime exhibition debuting at the Conservatory of Flowers on December 2. Light and sound will transform the iconic San Francisco landmark into a glowing landscape of interactive and immersive experiences. Guests are invited to embark on a journey through the tropics where cotton candy sunsets are abundant, rare and unusual flowers blossom in the moonlight, and fireflies come out to play. The exhibition will run on select evenings from December 2, 2018 through January 6, 2019.

Developed in partnership with Lightswitch, a consortium of internationally recognized lighting, media, and visual designers, guests are invited to enjoy the Conservatory wrapped with dazzling lighting as never before seen. Night Bloom includes six site-specific installations dispersed throughout the Conservatory’s wood-and-glass walls, with an illuminated Conservatory and interactive displays welcoming guests. Inspired by the institution’s internationally renowned botanical collection, the expansive nighttime exhibit is experienced through a wandering path where guests of all ages are encouraged to partake in a living playground powered by illumination.
