Celebrate Chinese Culture at Gilroy Gardens' Lumination

November 06, 2016

This holiday season, Gilroy Gardens is proud to present a breathtaking exhibit celebrating over 2,000 years of Chinese art, culture, and heritage. Best viewed after dark, ‘Lumination’ is a unique and dramatic display of sound and light sculptures depicting China’s past that will inform, entertain, and delight viewers of all ages.

Some of these impressive displays are as much as six stories high, and include Qilin, pandas, dragons, the Terracotta Warriors, the Temple of Heaven, and China’s Great Wall. There will also be nightly live performances by traditional Chinese jugglers, acrobats, and performers skilled in the venerable art of “face-changing.”

The exhibit and night-time shows are free with a ‘Lumination’ admission, and also include entrance into the artisan marketplace, where you can watch gifted Chinese artists as they create hand-crafted works of meticulously-detailed art.

‘Lumination’ is open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 6:00 PM-10:00 PM, through January 8, 2017. Visit www.gilroygardens.org for more information.
