Ion Art, the famed neon art shop, is known for coloring the city. The Surreal series, in particular, is one of their most cherished contributions to Austin. An accessible and fun presentation, the annual interactive art experience is filled with fantastical neon art pieces created by Sharon Keshishian and the Ion Art team. After canceling their last event due to COVID, the dreamlike exhibition is finally returning this April.
This year’s addition to the series will be The Surreal Garden, hosted at the Zilker Botanical Garden. From April 21–30, visitors will be able to explore the funky neon art installation that decorates the serene park setting. The public is also invited to attend mesmerizing parties for two consecutive weekends that include surreal botanical-themed neon art, interactive sculptures, local-favorite foods, craft cocktails, live DJs, themed costumes, dancing and more.
Get your tickets to the fantasy event now and know that a portion of the proceeds from the hypnotic art extravaganza will benefit the Zilker Botanical Garden Conservancy, a non-profit organization that intends to advance the capacity and status of Zilker Botanical Garden.
