The Missouri Botanical Gardenâ€™s mission is â€śto discover and share knowledge about plants and their environment in order to preserve and enrich life.â€ť Today, 155 years after opening, the Missouri Botanical Garden is a National Historic Landmark and a center for science, conservation, education and horticultural display. The Garden offers unique events and exhibits year-round including this summerâ€™s Magic Reimagined Lantern Festival running May 23-August 23. Following critical acclaim and rave reviews from visitors during the 2012 Festival, the Garden has commissioned new sets crafted from silk and steel to once again offer visitors from around the world the opportunity to see an event rarely staged outside of Asia. Lantern festivals are a central part of Chinese culture, dating back thousands of years. Today, lantern festivals traditionally mark the Chinese New Year, when complex and ornate lanterns fill cities. The 22 sets that will be seen during Lantern Festival 2015 will be constructed using traditional materials including silk, wire and porcelain. Each set will include interpretation detailing the designâ€™s tradition, symbolism and meaning. For more information visit www.mobot.org.
