GLEAM, Art in a New Light


GLEAM, Art in a New Light, returns to Olbrich with an exciting new series of illuminated art installations bringing mystery and delight to the outdoor gardens in the evening. Collaborations between artists and lighting designers create objects and effects that feature light as a dynamic physical presence. An evening wander is sure to inspire all ages as each installation engages the senses and sparks wonder!

“Inspired by ancient seeds, the magic of natural phenomena, Madison’s lakes, the Chinese Zodiac and a cultural heritage of singing, the GLEAM 2016 artists transform Olbrich Gardens into a special place of wonder, alive with enchantment and unexpected transformations.” - David Wells, GLEAM Artistic Director
