GLEAM, Art in a New Light, is an annual exhibit featuring local, national and international artists creating light-based installations throughout Olbrich’s 16-acre outdoor gardens. Visitors wind their way through dimly lit pathways, encountering strange and surprising forms that pulse and shimmer in the night around every corner.
Experience the gardens after dark in a whole new light!
GLEAM will be viewable daily, during regular public daytime hours in September and October. When the sun sets, the Gardens will open for extended viewing hours and art installations will be illuminated.
“GLEAM 2018 features artists and designers from right here in the Midwest, Pittsburgh, PA, Brooklyn, NY, down south in Tulsa, OK, and all the way across the Atlantic from the Netherlands! These provocateurs design original light installations using everything from video projection and lasers to simple paracord string to create awe inspiring visuals. The Thai Pavilion will be highlighted for the first time, broadening the range of the nighttime garden experiences.”
Admission for the general public is $15 for adults 13 & up ($11 for members) and $7 for children ages 3-12 ($6 for members).
Tickets available at the door starting at 7:30 p.m. pending online ticket sales. Gardens will close to the public at 6 p.m. on evening viewing dates. Last ticket sold at 10 p.m. (9:00 in October).
