“Imaginary Worlds: Plants Larger Than Life,” the Atlanta Botanical Garden’s hit exhibit, ends on Thursday. But the 25-foot-tall Earth Goddess sculpture will remain a long-term fixture in the garden.
With thousands of tiny lights replacing plants, she will be transformed during the seasonal light show “Garden Lights, Holiday Nights” (opening Nov. 16 through Jan. 4) into Ice Goddess.
The two giant “Imaginary Worlds” cobras similarly will morph into Candy Cane Cobras.
More than 162,000 guests visited “Imaginary Worlds” from May through September, doubling attendance over the same period last year, according to a garden spokesperson. Meanwhile, membership has increased 30 percent, to more than 25,000 households. HOWARD POUSNER
