Museum of Outdoor Art – Buy your own ticket
Meet the Group in front and we’ll walk in together! http://www.naturaobscura.org/ticket-information/
Natura Obscura is an immersive arts experience produced by the Museum of Outdoor Arts in collaboration with Prismajic. The experience also has ancillary installations by Nicole Banowetz, Chris Bagley, Tiffany Matheson, Travis Powell, Ian Wagner, Scott Soffa and Mickey Houlihan.
Years in the making, Natura Obscura is a surrealist walk through the forest; an exploration of our ever changing relationship with Nature through time. Created by over a twenty artists, the experience engages our senses in an immersive journey that opens the mind and awakens the spirit.
It’s a cutting edge, interactive exploration combining art and technology that’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Discover the mysteries of the imagination. Discover Natura Obscura.
See you there!

Upon arrival at the museum (on the second floor of the civic center), you’re handed a blacklight flashlight and asked to download the Natura Obscura app. You’ll want both, but not having the app won’t diminish the experience as significantly as not taking the light.
Inside, soft white tendrils hang from twisted trees. Every craggy surface glows under your black light, revealing hidden messages and small creatures. It’s dark, but not scary-dark — every light glows rather than shines. Soft white owls are perched in the trees and “spirits” sit throughout the woods, carved into little wood blocks and waiting to be awoken by your app. Point the phone’s camera at Miki, spirit of trees and growth, and you’ll learn she’s “the wind in the willows, a child’s curiosity, and the twinkle in your eye.” Her friends call her Sprout.
Natura Obscura is designed for all ages, Mosquera said, with something for everybody.
