CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. -- Van Cortlandt Manor is set to present Lightscapes, an exhibit featuring sculpture, light, sound and special effects, beginning on Friday, May 2.
Lightscapes will run for 11 weekends at Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-on-Hudson. Lightscapes is a "walk-through, land-art experience" that allows visitors to "enter through a rainbow and emerge from a bubbly haze into a dreamland of curiosities spread throughout a historic landscape," according to a press release. The exhibit is open to the public and ideal for all ages.
"Recycled elements serve as eco-friendly building blocks for intergalactic flora and friendly woodland creatures," representatives said in the release. "Otherworldly mushrooms, floating fairies, and beautiful butterflies are among the thousands of creations onsite. Path elements include an enormous walk-through caterpillar and a meandering butterfly maze. Larger-than-life elements like a massive praying mantis, a super-size birdhouse, and a dino-sized egg join thousands of smaller sculptures — more than 7,500 in all — to create the tableau."
Lightscapes runs on Friday and Saturday evenings in May and the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend on May 2, 3, 9,10, 16,17, 23, 24, 25, 30 and 31.
Tickets are $16 for adults, $12 for children and free for children under 3 and Historic Hudson Valley members. Visitors who purchase tickets online before April 11 receive an additional $2 per ticket discount. Van Cortlandt Manor is at 525 South Riverside Ave. in Croton-on-Hudson, just off Route 9.
