Franklin Park Conservatory offered six special engagements of “Chihuly Nights” after its reopening in June, said Director of Marketing and Communications Jenn Wilson. While capacity was limited for these special engagements due to the pandemic, each date sold out.
“It is evident that people want some sort of normalcy during these unprecedented times, and the conservatory, with its natural indoor and outdoor offerings, can provide a safe and relaxing experience,” she said.
Expect to see the conservatory’s permanent Chihuly collection transformed into a kaleidoscope of glowing colors when it’s lit up against the night sky.
You’ll also be able to see the historic John F. Wolfe Palm House illuminated by James Turrell’s “Light Raiment II,” catch other conservatory exhibitions, and grab a bite at the Garden Café.
To visit, you’ll need to purchase a Special Engagement admission ticket via the conservatory’s website.
The tickets are $22 for general admission (ages 13-59), $19 for seniors (60+), and $12 for children (3-12).
