On Wednesday, July 24, Long Beach’s first immersive pop-up exhibit will open to the public and encourage viewers to contemplate their connection to nature. Installed in the recently renovated Edison Theatre in Downtown, The Art of Bloom’s first iteration is called Symbiosis. Through the creative use of flowers, from a hanging truss containing hundreds, maybe thousands of real blossoms kept alive in individual water tubes, ambient sounds, heat-sensing and AR technology and the science of perfumery, the multi-sensory artwork magnifies how humans project meaning onto the ubiquitous plants.
Put on by Long Beach-based Intertrend Communications, the producer behind Pow! Wow! Long Beach, The Art of Bloom is on view at the Edison Theatre, 213 E. Broadway from July 24 through September 29. Tickets are $24 for adults and $12 for kids 4-12 years old. For more information, workshops and tickets, check out the website here.
