    Returning Spring of 2023! For the second consecutive year, Ion Art will illuminate the Zilker Botanical Garden with The Surreal Garden Exhibition. The Surreal Series is an annual interactive art experience full of fantastical neon sculptures created by Sharon & Greg Keshishian and the Ion Art Team. By integrating the exhibit into the serene setting of the enchanting botanical garden, the already stunning art event becomes a phenomenal neon extravaganza and a wonderful way to benefit the Garden.

    A portion of the event proceeds will benefit the Zilker Botanical Garden Conservancy (ZBGC), a 501c(3) established in 2015 to advance the capacity and status of Zilker Botanical Garden. The Garden is now managed as a public-private partnership between the City of Austin Parks & Recreation Department (PARD) and the ZBGC.
