This year*, Phipps Conservatory’s Winter Light Garden is bigger and better than ever. From illuminated gift-wrapped boxes to new new “aurora borealis” architectural lighting in the Sunken Garden, the project was a huge undertaking for them. And we were happy to help!

To achieve the Winter Light Garden, the Phipps team worked with us, Hanlon Electric, to design a robust power management plan and install many of the structures. Phipps met with our journeymen on a weekly basis during installation to review designs and assess installation progress. Only through collaborations with artists, fabricators and electricians was the vision for Winter Light Garden actually achieved.

It has been named one of the world’s best design + art projects in CODAmagazine, it has received numerous local accolades and The Winter Light Garden has now become one of Pittsburgh’s favorite holiday events. This year, the show will run from November 24 through January 7, 2017, and timed tickets are available to help control the flow of traffic.
