Nashville Zoo’s ‘Night Visions: a Wild Display of Light and Sound’ opens April 15


Nashville, TN – Night at the Nashville Zoo will wow you as Night Visions: A Wild Display of Light and Sound opens to the public on April 15, 2022.

This after-hours event features projection lights, whimsical imagery and sound through an immersive celebration of art and nature. Night Visions will run Thursday through Sunday evenings through July 17.

After sunset, guests will stroll along a zoo path and be immersed in a breathtaking spectacle.

Created by Philadelphia-based Klip Collective, this captivating, one-of-a-kind experience uses an imaginative combination of light and sound to create a unique bridge between technology and storytelling. Whimsical lights will scatter across different surfaces in a dazzling kaleidoscope of color. Guests can expect to see lights, patterns and images illuminate the landscape of the Nashville Zoo.

Klip Collective creates site-specific sensory experiences using a unique synthesis of projection mapping, lighting and sound design. Klip’s installations are dynamic, layered transformations of architecture and nature into large-scale, visual and auditory works of art. The collective includes a team of production and technical partners who create together under the unified vision and direction of video and installation artist, Ricardo Rivera.

Klip’s first sound and light exhibition, Nightscape, was presented at Longwood Gardens in 2015. Klip subsequently created Electric Desert at the Desert Botanical Garden, the Art Walk at Hermitage Farm, and Night Forms: dreamloop at Grounds For Sculpture. Learn more about Klip Collective at
