San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers | 100 John F. Kennedy Dr., San Francisco, CA

Illumination: Summer of Love Light Art in the Park | Golden Gate Park

Flowers power the night this summer as the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park becomes the canvas for an elegant light art installation to honor San Francisco’s city-wide celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love.

Originally scheduled to end on October 21st, “Photosynthesis” has been extended through November 26, 2017.

But don’t worry, there’s a brand new winter light show scheduled to kick off December 7, 2017, and run into 2018.

Technicians from Obscura Digital will be testing the Conservatory of Flowers’ “Summer of Love” digital projections starting at approximately 9:30pm (for about 45 minutes) on Monday, June 19, 2017, in advance of the public debut scheduled for Wednesday, June 21, 2017.

This will be your first chance to see these amazing lights in action, though please note that because this is just testing, the start/end times might vary. The best place to watch will likely be from JFK Drive.

Developed in partnership with San Francisco Recreation and Parks, the light art installation, initiated by Ben Davis of Illuminate, the nonprofit arts group behind The Bay Lights, together with Obscura Digital, a world-renowned creative studio specializing in large-scale light-based art, uses gobo projectors to transform the all-white landmark with a series of exquisite scenes inspired by the rare tropical flowers within and the legacy of San Francisco’s flower children.
