Need a great reason to head for New York City this summer? We’ve got a wonderful excuse to hop in the car for a cross-country road trip or go the easy route and jump on a plane to the Big Apple, for the eye-popping Dale Chihuly glass sculpture exhibit at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx opens to the public on April 22, 2017. “Chihuly” will be on display for the whole spring and summer and actually kicks off a season of many special events at that massive garden located in the Bronx, including concerts, nighttime light shows and plenty of children’s events.

Featuring more than 20 exhibits of Chihuly’s works, the collaboration between the New York Botanical Gardens (NYBG), Bank of America and the Chihuly studio covers the arc of the artist’s life, including many current-day pieces as well as some dating from the very beginning of his career.

This came through Denver at our botanic gardens, I’m not much of an artist and I think most things that are supposed to be spectacular get lost on me… regardless it was a good walk and interesting pieces

Beautiful!! Enjoy the show! Take lots of pics and share!! Wish I could attend.

Nice! We’re not members, but it looks a like family trip up from the wilderness of Brooklyn might definitely be worth the effort. Thanks!

And the Museum of Glass in Tacoma is a quick zip right down I-5.

Chihuly is amazing. Went to see his exhibit in Boston years ago and I was blown away. I wish I could see his garden work in person.
