University at Buffalo Collaboration

The UB Theatre & Dance Department, in collaboration with the Botanical Gardens and Luminated Landscapes, will bring new technology and theatrical design to Lumagination!  UB will contribute illuminated sculptures, as well as a light and soundscape for the interior of one of the greenhouses. A talented team of professors, undergraduate students and artists will work alongside the Botanical Gardens and Luminated Landscapes to bring these concepts to life!
