Join us again for one of the most unique lighting shows in Santa Fe! GLOW features thousands of lights all aglow throughout the Botanical Garden, including our newest garden section, Ojos y Manos. Grab a friend or bring the family (kids 12 and under are FREE!) and enjoy a hot beverage by the fire, traditional (and untraditional!) holiday music, delicious food and drink, do a little holiday shopping in the Garden’s Gift shop and be bedazzled by a special laser light show designed for this year’s GLOW.

Not only will the Botanical Garden’s plants be the illuminated stars of GLOW, this year the event features two artists working in diverse media. Victoria Rabinowe’s “Spirit Poles”, made of small painted aspen trunks, are integrated into GLOW and provide a powerful visual rhythm of color and pattern.

Christopher Short is an award winning laser artist who recently relocated to Santa Fe from Arizona. His dazzling laser presentations will amaze all ages and will be offered nightly in the new Hendricksen Pavilion. Rounding out the Garden’s fine art offerings are the stunning sculptures by Bill Barrett, illuminated and transformed for GLOW. As you will see, GLOW continues to evolve in exciting news ways!
