Coming Up: Conservatory of Flowers Photosynthesis Exhibit Continued

Cue to popular demand, the Photosynthesis continues through November 26th at the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park.

This landmark became the canvas for Photosynthesis, an elegant public art installation to honor San Francisco’s citywide celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love. Photosynthesis is a special project presented by Illuminate, the nonprofit arts group behind the Bay Lights, in partnership with San Francisco Recreation and Park Department, and Obscura Digital, a world-renowned creative studio specializing in large-scale light-based art. The installation at 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 exquisitely illuminated scenes inspired by the rare tropical flowers within and the legacy of San Francisco’s flower children.


The free public installation went live on June 21st during the 2017 Summer Solstice. The artwork has been on view nightly from sundown until midnight and will be extended through the Thanksgiving weekend, until November 26th.
