    INTERACTIVE GUIDE

    CHIHULY
    Saturday, April 22, 2017 – Sunday, October 29, 2017

    Breathtaking works of art that dazzle with color, light, and form—by day and night
    Artworks by world-renowned artist Dale Chihuly are now on view at NYBG in his first major garden exhibition in New York in more than ten years. CHIHULY, presented by Bank of America, showcases more than 20 installations and includes drawings and early works that reveal the evolution and development of Chihuly’s artistic process during his celebrated career. Set within NYBG’s landmark landscape and buildings, this sensory-filled exhibition is a must-see throughout the changing seasons from spring through fall.

    The Garden’s dramatic vistas become living canvases for work created specifically for NYBG, showcasing Chihuly’s signature organic shapes in brilliant colors. Among the singular sights is a monumental reimagination of his storied 1975 Artpark installation: three new works enliven the water features of the Native Plant Garden and the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory Courtyard’s Tropical Pool, reflecting the interplay and movement of color and light.

    Special weekend celebrations, films, poetry, and fun-filled art programs for kids offer colorful and imaginative tributes to nature. On CHIHULY Nights, the exhibition is infused with a magical energy as the artworks are spectacularly illuminated amid NYBG’s sweeping vistas and magnificent Conservatory.

    When I lived in the Bronx, many moons ago, about 27 years ago, I was about two miles from the Bronx Botanical Gardens (a.k.a. The New York Botanical Gardens). I used to do a lot of walking then. Nothing was more pleasurable than walking to the gardens and then walking the trails of the gardens. At every turn, there was a new garden room. It was like being in a whole different world. I would spend hours there.
