Lantern Festival: Art by Day, Magic by Night

 

Thank you, St. Louis, for making Lantern Festival: Art by Day, Magic by Night a tremendous success!


Commemorating its 25th year of work on the Flora of China project, in 2012 the Garden hosted Lantern Festival: Art by Day, Magic by Night, a unique opportunity to witness a spectacle rarely staged outside Asia.

Elaborate outdoor sets crafted of silk and steel celebrated Chinese culture through bold color, dazzling light and striking design.
