Grand Park’s Winter Glow & Music Center’s Illuminated Tree Forest – Los Angeles, CA

‘Tis The Season For Lights

Grand Park’s Winter Glow & Music Center’s Illuminated Tree Forest – Los Angeles, CA

Since I am still technically still on the Injured List this holiday season and unable to drive due to recovering from knee replacement surgery, Tracy is my pulse on what’s going on here in Los Angeles. Driving past the recently renovated Music Center Plaza in DTLA, Tracy was drawn towards the bright shining lights of Broadway … ok, not Broadway, but Grand Park …

… which is located across the street from the Music Center and is illuminated this year with a twinkling pink Christmas tree.

The Music Center, not to be outdone, has a tall tree awash in glittering white lights with a nearby art installation called the Illuminated Tree Forest.

It is a brightly lit “forest of inflated cone ‘trees’ in a rainbow of colors” from artist Doron Gazit of Air DD.

The Music Center also has a dancing fountain which helps to frame the view across Grand Avenue towards City Hall. 

Tracy wandered about for a bit taking photos on her way home from work and captured a few of the 20 pieces crafted by local artists.

This is the second year of Grand Park’s Winter Glow which is “an immersive night time art experience.”  The lights can be seen nightly from sundown to 10 p.m. until Christmas.   The best part … in my best impersonation of Larry from Sit ’n Sleep … “It’s freeeeeee!”

P.S.  If you too are drawn to bright and sparkly objects be sure to also check out the Moonlight Forest – Lantern Art Festival at the Los Angeles Arboretum in Arcadia, CA.  We attended last year (click here for story and photos of our visit), and it was a vibrant and colorful experience.  Moonlight Forest is open Wednesday through Sunday, 5:30 to 10 p.m. until January 12, 2020.  (Mai Tai Tom Tip for Moonlight Forest Visit: if you don’t have children, go later in the evening to allow time for the stroller brigade to depart.  Your knees, ankles and sanity will thank you.
