NEW YORK BOTANICAL GARDEN—CHIHULY  INSTALLATION

It has been over ten years since the artwork of world-renowned sculptor Dale Chihuly has been featured in a major exhibit in New York and the dramatic vistas of  The New York Botanical Garden provide an ideal setting for Chihuly’s work.  His one-of-a-kind installations will highlight the connection between his sculptures and the natural world and complement the architecture of the Conservatory, itself a work of art.  New, hand-blown lass sculptures, created especially for the New York Botanical Garden will be on exhibit through the Garden.  The Garden in the Bronx consists of 28 specialty gardens, including a conservatory, a children’s adventure garden, and a 40-acre old-growth forest.  After spending the morning in the Gardens you will have time to stroll down Arthur Avenue, the “little Italy of the Bronx” for lunch on your own (if you haven’t eaten in the gardens) a a chance to shop for Italian specialties.  If you would like, bring a cooler on the bus:  no alcoholic beverages allowed on the bus.  No discounts apply.
