Supernova is a free, light-based art exhibit and community celebration. Building off of last year's success, Supernova brings spectacle, light, art and color to the new Greenway Plaza and Greenway Station open-air pavilion.

The Greenway's biggest fundraiser of 2021, combing the spirits of the Greenway Soiree and the Greenway Fest that could not take place in 2021 due to COVID-19, into one joyous weekend. Sponsorships and gifts from this exhibit are the Greenway's most critical source of funding for the Greenway's care, programs, plantings, and projects in the year ahead.
