----------

Join Atlas Obscura, Empty Bottle, Sacred Bones & The Garfield Park Conservatory after-hours for a transformative experience combining sound, light and the gardens' lush vegetation.

The multi-sensory experience is inspired by Mort Garson's 1976 album Mother Earth’s Plantasia, which was intended for plants and the people who love them. The record was reissued on vinyl June 21, 2019 after it’s only pressing 43 years ago. 

Attendees are invited to explore the expansive grounds and participate in one of two timed listening sessions to hear Plantasia in the gardens’ atriums. 

For this one-time special Plantasia event, Empty Bottle has thoughtfully curated a lineup of musicians to reimagine movements of Plantasia. Listen to new interpretations of Mort Garson’s Music for Plants by a variety of experimental, classical and indie rock musicians.

Atlas Obscura will also be hosting a “Kirlian,” or plant-aura photography demonstration by artist Jacqueline Castel.
