Enchanted outdoor gardens glitter in lights of creative art
I love the way towns and cities are now combining art and history to create visual aspects to our heritage, instead of having to research through libraries and books. This way the artwork creates an optical memory in the conscious and if an interest arises to learn more, then the inspiration comes to delve further.

Over the period of 20 to 29 May 2022, the Brisbane City Council is presenting Botanica: Contemporary Art Outside, which will light up the Brisbane's City Botanic Gardens and celebrate Australia's leading contemporary artists and designers.

The event is free to the public and includes guided twilight walks as well as a popular children's discovery trail, interactive workshops where you can contribute to an exhibit, presentations and more.

Last year Botanica captivated the interest of over 70,000 visitors and with the 2022 curiosity building, this year is sure to be impressive with a line-up of eleven artworks including ultramodern projections, unexpected installations and interactive pieces created by leading artists such as Leila Honari, Julie Monro-Allison and Tim Gruncy.

The Museum of Brisbane is producing the event where they have carefully selected each artwork to reflect the history of Brisbane while creating an experience that melds art, science, technology and nature into one, yet still exploring contemporary themes such as sustainability and innovation.

On Friday and Saturday evenings throughout Botanica, there will be delicious food trucks and an outdoor bar, so bring your friends and family along to enjoy the night.

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said that the Council was delighted to bring this exhibition to life in the beautiful surrounds of the City Botanic Gardens while offering a multi-sensory experience suitable for the whole family.
