Botanical Gardens readies for Lumagination 2017

BUFFALO -- The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens is preparing to flip the switch for Lumagination 2017, a collaboration with Luminated Landscapes and the UB Theatre and Dance department that adds technology and theatrical design to the beauty of the gardens.

UB will contribute illuminated sculptures for the front lawn of the Botanical Gardens, as well as a light and soundscape for the interior of one of the greenhouses. A talented team of professors, undergraduate students and artists will work alongside the Botanical Gardens and Luminated Landscapes to bring these concepts to life beginning with a special launch party from 6-9 p.m. on Jan. 24.

The launch party, which includes signature cocktails and festive appetizers from Obviously Avi Catering, fun entertainment and a sneak peek of Lumagination 2017 is $35 for Botanical Gardens members and $40 for the general public with ticket purchase by Jan. 19. Tickets will be $45 thereafter.
