If you’re looking for something to plan a short vacation around this year, consider a hop to New York to take in the Chihuly exhibit at the New York Botanical Garden. Get tickets to a Broadway show, make reservations for a couple really nice meals out, and spend a couple days at the garden. (I say this because Chihuly glass lit for evening viewing is very nice. And so is Chihuly glass sparkling in the sunlight.)
And you really could do worse than hanging out in a garden, you know? it’s good for the soul. I really like that NYBG’s stated commitments are:
- Connecting gardning to the arts and humanities
- Saving the plants of the world
- Teaching science to city kids
- Creating a green urban oasis
- Anchoring the community
Right now, they’re well into unpacking glass and getting it all set up. The exhibit opens on 22 April 2017.
So consider it! This will be a big exhibit this year, and there will be some special glass created just for NYBG. Let me know how it goes. And take photos!
