Charles Gadeken’s popular Entwined light display is back this year, bigger and better than ever before! However, this week (as of Jan. 3), Peacock Meadow will be closed to the public due to extensive flooding with more rainy days in the forecast. The lights will stay on so we can enjoy the new “Peacock Lake” from afar, every night from 5-10pm. Stay tuned as we wait to see when the meadow will re-open.
Make sure you pay a visit to this massive immersive meadow, this time with even more interactive elements. The whimsical installation transforms Peacock Meadow into an otherworldly ecosystem of glowing trees, bushes, and other natural elements created from colorful pixel-like LED lights. The trees range from 8-20 feet tall, accompanied by dozens of glowing flower clusters and bushes to create a beautiful meadow landscape.
Entwined is on display in Golden Gate Park’s Peacock Meadow from December 1, 2022 – March 12, 2023.
Visitors can explore this newly re-envisioned installation, which now includes sculptural artworks including a seating area and hidden tree knots where visitors can peek into secret worlds. The meadow will also add weekly performances and new art activations.
The installation features enchanting visual effects such as ripples in a pond, raindrops, and wind blowing tall grass and flowers. Over 150 lighting patterns with hundreds of variations and an accompanying audio system bring another level of immersion to the otherworldly meadow.
Local artist Charles Gadeken created this installation with the goal of engaging people of all ages and all walks of life. His work prioritizes accessibility in art, and has been seen at Burning Man, Coachella, and more.
The free outdoor exhibition accompanies other park attractions including the SkyStar Observation Wheel and the illuminated Bandshell.
Entwined is a temporary installation, but it will be open all the way into March, giving everyone plenty of time to experience the magic. It is located in Peacock Meadow in the east end of the park between McLaren Lodge and the Conservatory of Flowers. Visitors can see Entwined from 5-10pm each night.
