It is with great disappointment that we must cancel Olbrich Botanical Gardens’ GLEAM exhibit for 2020.

After consultation with Public Health officials and the Madison Parks Division, it has been determined that hosting GLEAM under the current restrictions is no longer a feasible option. The health and safety of our visitors, volunteers, and staff is our top priority.

We were looking forward to sharing this much-loved art exhibit with our community this fall, especially at a time when the world needs some sparkle. While the lights will go out for GLEAM in 2020, our team is already working to ensure that they’ll shine even brighter in 2021!!
