'Illumination' puts spotlight on Morton Arboretum
- Photos (3)
Cutting-edge technology usually doesn't come immediately to mind when you're enjoying trees and the outdoors.
But all that's about to change at the Morton Arboretum when its "Illumination" program opens tonight and continues through Jan. 4 at the woody-plant museum at 4100 Route 53 in Lisle.
"Illumination: Tree Lights at the Morton Arboretum" features state-of-the-art light displays along a 1-mile paved trail that will let visitors hug a tree to make it grow brighter; sing to a tree to make it change color; and interact with light and color with the swipe of a hand.
The cutting-edge technology will help visitors see trees, and the arboretum, in a whole new light, organizers say.
"Illumination" is open from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. nightly except for Nov. 28 and Dec. 2, 9, 16, 24 and 25. Tickets for members are $10 for adults and $5 for children; for nonmembers they're $15 for adults and $10 for children. For details on the display, visit mortonarb.org or call (630) 725-2066.
