Sponsored by Reeves-Reed Arboretum Bus departs promptly from the Grand Summit Hotel at 4:00 pm and departs NYBG at 9:30 pm 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. After sunset, the atmosphere is thrilling: experience the heightened drama and luminous quality of Dale Chihuly's colors and forms when lit under the evening sky. In the Visitor Center plaza, a rotating lineup of performing artists and musicians provides entertainment while you relax and enjoy shopping, food, and Avión Tequila cocktails available for purchase. The artworks by world-renowned artist Dale Chihuly are on view at NYBG in his first major garden exhibition in New York in more than ten years. CHIHULY 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. 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.
