James Turrell’s Light Raiment II

Already resplendent by day, this collaboration with internationally renowned light artist James Turrell has transformed the John F. Wolfe Palm House into a Columbus beacon by night. Light Raiment II features a permanent installation of 7,000 computer-controlled LED light sources that illuminate the Palm House in a nightly show.

The beautiful shifting hues of this exhibit have served as backdrop to numerous fundraisers, celebrations and annual ProMusica concerts performed on the Wolfe Terrace and in the Mallway.  A key feature in the Conservatory’s vision of botanical gardens and beauty, Light Raiment II has become an inseparable part of the historic Palm House’s acclaim.
