@ Garfield Park Conservatory

300 N Central Park Ave, Chicago, IL 60624

Opening Wednesday, September 14th, from 6:30PM - 9PM

Please join us for a closing reception of solarise: a sea of all colors at Garfield Park Conservatory on September 14, 6:30PM–9PM.

From the Fall Equinox of 2015 through September 2016, solarise has activated the Conservatory with dynamic, large-scale installations responding to the plants and architecture of the building. Additionally, we have presented a series of select monthly events coinciding with the exhibition including panel discussions, artist-led walk throughs, live music performances and more, sponsored by diverse partners throughout the city. For this finale program we have invited long-time collaborator—musician and composer Owen Clayton Condon—to perform live using plant materials from the conservatory collection to create soundscapes accompanying the artwork on view.

Join us as we celebrate the closing of this year-long event, along with our generous sponsors, past partners, and the staff of the conservatory!

Refreshments provided by Perrier. The exhibition is made possible through a generous grant provided by ComEd and Exelon.
