Atlanta’s Botanical Garden is getting a modern twist on holiday lights this year and it involves glowing rows of LEDs! A collaboration with the Lighting Science Group and CD + M Lighting and Design Group, their exhibition “Garden Lights, Holiday Nights” will feature a line of orb-like LED lights in vibrant colors. Almost one million lights glitter around the botanical garden’s grounds, creating an LED winter wonderland!
The gorgeous display is not only energy efficient, since it’s stocked with LED lights, but the fixtures – the Christmas tree and shrub shapes – are also entirely recyclable after the holidays! Each year, public gardens such as the Atlanta Botanical Garden decorate their grounds with holiday displays attracting visitors and creating traditions for their families.
The Atlanta Botanical Garden’s choice to outfit their grounds with an energy efficient display this year is a powerful message to their public that integrating low energy usage and recyclable materials are just as important as paying homage to the importance of nature and organic beauty. The entire display uses only 10 watts of energy, and casts 16.7 million different color shades! Paired with sound sensitivity, the display is an energy efficient, animated holiday delight.
