This fall, the internationally acclaimed “China Lights” exhibit will return to Boerner Botanical Gardens! The tour is mounted by Tianyu Arts and Culture, Inc of Zigong City, China. The exhibit is comprised of 38 displays with over 1,000 brightly lighted components in the stunning nine acre Boerner Botanical’s Formal Gardens. All the components, ranging from a single three foot tall panda to a pagoda over two stories high, are created on site by Chinese artisans. The construction and installation process requires 5 weeks of non stop work by over 30 artisans. The components are created from welded metal frames with colorful silk fabric applied and then internally lighted with LED lighting.
In addition to the stunning lighted displays, there will be multiple nightly stage performances highlighting various Chinese entertainment. The Boerner Garden House will be the site of multiple cultural displays and video presentations. Food and beverages will be available, featuring both Asian and American selections. The exhibit will open from 5:30PM to 10:00PM nightly, closed Mondays.
