For the second consecutive year, Ion Art
will illuminate the Zilker Botanical Garden
with their Surreal Garden
exhibition, an interactive art experience full of fantastical neon sculptures created by Sharon and Greg Keshishian
and the relentlessly inventive Ion Art team. (You probably recall the brilliance they visited upon the public in the first iteration of this multivalent wonderment
, right?) By integrating such a glowing, flickering, shimmering show into the serene setting of Austin's botanical gardens, the artists turn an already stunning event into a neon extravaganza
– and a wonderful way to benefit the venue. Suggestion: Dress in your surreal best for night full of art, music, costumes, live entertainment, dancing, food trailers, cash bars, and more – and do check out the posh VIP preview option
for April 6.
Through April 15. Thu.-Sat., 6:30-11pm. $40 and up.
