A seldom-seen botanical nightlife captured while the world slumbers is revealed in the Garden at Night Exhibit, running June 6 through August 30, 2015, at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Wausau, Wisconsin. The images, taken by acclaimed freelance photographer Linda Rutenberg, use only moonlight and flashlights for illumination. The vistas captured during these nocturnal sojourns take on an ethereal glow, with colors vividly displayed against a nighttime canvas. Rutenberg took the photographs, about 40 of which are on display, at botanical gardens throughout North America and Europe.

The Garden at Night Exhibit is free to the public and open during museum hours. Visitors can take a self-guided audio tour of Rutenberg’s work by listening to iPods on loan from the museum or by downloading the Woodson Art Museum's free audio tour app. Groups of 10 or more adults may request a docent-guided tour of the exhibit by scheduling at least three weeks in advance.

To schedule a group tour, contact Lisa Hoffman at lhoffman@lywam.org or call 715-845-7010.
