January at the Chicago Botanic Garden
If you still haven’t had your fill of the joys of the season, visit the Chicago Botanic Garden and experience the magic of Wonderland Express. Chicago Botanic Garden transforms into a winter wonderland with exquisite holiday displays featuring more than 750,000 LED lights that illuminate the garden starting at the main entrance leading you to the exhibition inside the Regenstein Center. The greenhouses are decked out with lush topiaries, poinsettias and orchids, and walls inside the Regenstein Center are adorned with wreaths decorated by garden staff. Meanwhile garden-scale trains wind their way over bridges and through tunnels, past waterfalls and more than 80 miniature versions of Chicago landmarks handcrafted with natural materials like twigs, bark, acorns, leaves and pebbles, creating a 10,000-square-foot horticultural wonder.
If you venture to the outdoor gardens, look for scenic vistas across the water, the golden branches of weeping willows, red-twig dogwoods, picturesque pines and spruces and colorful fruits that offer interest to visitors and hungry birds.
Beginning on Jan. 19, the Joutras Gallery will offer the Woodcut exhibit. In a remarkable ink and paper documentation, Bryan Nash Gill captures the miracle of nature and time through every line, crack and tree ring. Woodcut reveals the fascinating history of individual trees through prints made of cross-sections of salvaged wood.
