Lumagination 2018 Survey

February 23 - Lumagination 6-10pm

February 24 - Lumagination 6-10pm

 
University at Buffalo Collaboration - The UB Theatre & Dance Department, in collaboration with the Botanical Gardens and Luminated Landscapes, will bring new technology and theatrical design to Lumagination!  UB will contribute illuminated sculptures, 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 to bring these concepts to life!

Lumagination will take visitors on a spectacular walk through the Botanical Gardens to experience creatively themed greenhouses, interactive entertainment and so much more!  As guests approach the Botanical Gardens, they will be greeted by illuminated sculptures and enter into a sea of fish to give guests the impression that they are under the sea.    

As guests enter the Main Palm Dome they will be greeted with a dramatic mix of choreographed sound and light including sea creatures projected onto the Dome.  Vibrant and colorful oversized coral will give you the feeling you are walking along the sea floor as all types of sea creatures swim above you.  Guests will move through each greenhouse to delight in exciting combinations of light, music and interactive fun.  The Aquatic Garden and Asian Rainforest will be flooded with unique light combinations, paper jelly fish and an amazing soundscape.  The desert room will be saturated with glow in the dark “plankton”.  Next on the journey, visitors will be surrounded by sea aliens of all shapes, sizes and colors, and the Wegmans Family Garden will be full of interactive fun for all ages.  Next, guests will enter a sea of glass coral sculptures and enjoy their walk on the sea floor full of fun surprises.  From here, visitors will enjoy interactive optical rugs of all different seascapes.  The next greenhouse will be designed by a talented team of professors, undergraduate students and artists from The University at Buffalo School of Theatre and Dance.  They will bring new technology and theatrical design to Lumagination 2018!  And finally, to make you feel lighter than air, attendees will be surrounded by bubbles of all colors, sizes and sounds.

Don’t miss WNY’s favorite spring tradition! This year, we are starting spring with an attitude of gratitude! With over 22,000 bulbs on display, our Gratitude Garden will be filled with all the spring plants you love with our Tibetan inspired gratitude flags. 
We are planning an exciting and meaningful exhibit for the Spring Flower Exhibit 2018! Inspired by Tibetan Prayer Flags, we will create our own Gratitude Garden.

As a staff, when we think about what we are grateful for, the list of supporters to thank is extremely long! The Botanical Gardens is a truly magnificent place that has touched many lives, and there is so much for which to be thankful. We want to express our gratitude to all of our donors, sponsors, members, volunteers, vendors and friends through an art installation inside the Botanical Gardens. We also want to give our community and visitors the opportunity to express gratitude to this amazing place.
Since September 2017, we offered Gratitude Flags to many of our supporters. Supporters wrote what the Botanical Gardens means to them, their favorite memory at the Botanical Gardens, favorite flower, etc… on their own personal flag. Our team and volunteers will string the colorful flags throughout the entire conservatory to complement the Spring Flower Exhibit to create our Gratitude Garden. Our goal is to accumulate 2,000 Gratitude Flags, complete with personal notes, for this amazing new exhibit.

The 4-H Farm will be open from 10am-4pm daily
Included with the exhibit is the 4-H Farm that will host baby bunnies, chicks, pigs, ducks and more!
