If you like to plan ahead, we’ve got your advanced-thinking butts covered.
This upcoming spring has much more in store than blooming flowers and rain, and we are looking forward to seeing rather than smelling something new at the Botanical Gardens.
Coming up this April, the New York Botanical Garden will be featuring Dale Chihuly's glass art exhibit.
Famous in New York City for his window display art at Barney’s over the holidays of 2015 and his 2006 exhibit at NYGB, the renowned artist will embellish the 250 acre garden with glass sculptures throughout the landscape.
As light and colors interact with the near-translucent geometric pieces, the already gorgeous environment will gain a new life.
According to TimeOut NY, Chihuly's works will be scattered among the grounds and buildings with sculptures particularly curated and designed for various spots.
The Native Plant Garden and the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory Courtyard’s Tropical Pool will see their water features transformed by dramatic hand-blown stained glass sculptures, while a new multicolor neon sculpture takes over the Conservatory Courtyard.
Also, the whimsical "Blue Herons" display will return to roost at the Haupt Conservatory.
Drawings, paintings and other paper works by the artist will also be on view at the LuEsther T. Mertz Library Building.
Chihuly’s exhibit opens April 22nd and runs through October 29th, which gives us plenty of time with the changing seasons as a backdrop. The garden will be open for special nights as well, so visitors can see the glass change with the sunset.
If it's anything like the exhibits Chihuly has had in other states, we're pumped for the Instagram photo opportunities.[via TimeOut NY] [Feature Image Courtesy Pinterest]
