Digital Nature: An evening of techno-botanical art in the garden

About This Event

The Arboretum and Natural Discourse present a spectacular evening of animation, light and sound in the garden. A group of acclaimed contemporary artists have been invited to project their work onto the rich canvas of the botanical garden. With themes as diverse as invasive exotics, natural pigments, plant tropism and an ancient Chinese poem, these digital and video works explore the intersection of horticulture and technology. Sited within the Arboretum’s collections to illuminate hidden meanings, the art will create surprise and delight in one of LA’s most treasured public gardens.

Please join us for a few magical hours to enjoy this rare opportunity to experience the garden in a unique and extraordinary way. There will be live music, a no-host bar and food trucks. Tickets: $10 members; $8 member’s children 5-12;  $16 general public; $14 general public children 5-12.  Tickets available now.
