SATELLITE BEACH, FL, Nov 28 (Marketwire) -- Lighting Science Group (OTCBB: LSCG), one of the world's leading LED lighting technology manufacturers, is proud to partner again with the Atlanta Botanical Garden's seasonal lighting exhibit, "Garden Lights, Holiday Nights," which features green both as a primary festival color and as an operating energy principle. Over 1.5 million lights have transformed the garden grounds into an illuminated wonderland including a Lighting Science LED original installation on the Great Lawn, which serves as the display's finale. Dazzling topiary forms of differentiating sizes and changing hues are choreographed as spectacular dancing lights to timeless holiday music. Visitors, designers, and artists alike will be impressed to discover that the displays are ultra-efficient and entirely recyclable. According to Gail Wood, Atlanta Botanical Garden Exhibition Manager, "Since this was our second year, the creativity bar was raised even higher. The teams worked for months in close collaboration with Lighting Science on top-secret designs to make this year's Great Lawn's "Orchestral Orbs" even more spectacular than the original 2011 debut. Lighting gurus from Lighting Science combined their world-renowned products and innovative technologies to illuminate a 50-foot-tall landmark Dawn Redwood tree. Additional Lighting Science innovations wash the front conservatory with multi-colored hues. "As a non-profit dedicated to cultivating and sharing organic beauty with the community, we were resolute that our holiday exhibition be a joyful expression of the season, but not at the expense of our mission to further environmental sustainability efforts and awareness," said Wood. "Lighting Science's brilliant LED fixtures transformed the Gardens into a breath-taking holiday landscape that will again delight thousands, all while preserving the environmental integrity that does justice to the natural magnificence of the Garden's living collections." Designed in collaboration with Tres Fromme, Landscape Designer, each of the LED luminaires uses a mere 10 watts of energy while boasting the capacity to cast over 16 million distinctive color shades. The LED fixtures also include integrated sound sensitivity capabilities which sync the bulbs' with a musical soundtrack to create a sensation of a "choreographed" dance routine. "This holiday season, Lighting Science is proud to provide the lighting technology behind the Atlanta Botanical Garden's interactive exhibition," said Keith Scott, chief commercial officer of Lighting Science. "By fusing LED technology and an unmatched eye for design, our Advanced Projects Group has turned architectural and artistic dreams into a brilliant winter wonderland. We are very proud to be a part of this wonderful exhibit once again." About the Atlanta Botanical Garden's Show The show will blanket the Garden's 30 acres in every shimmering color under the rainbow from November 17 - January 5. New sparkling attractions include spectacular lighting effects casting an icy cool vibe on the "Liquid Lights" in the Cascades Garden, while the "Starry Night Walk," inspired by Van Gogh's famous painting, features dozens of swirling stars twinkling along the walkway through the camellias.
