Day trip to New York: Tours of Chihuly at The New York Botanical Garden and The AIM Biennial at The Bronx Museum of The Arts
The New York Botanical Garden, founded in 1891, is a National Historic Landmark and one of the greatest botanical gardens in the world. An iconic living museum, it is distinguished by the beauty of its diverse landscape and extensive collections and gardens. A special exhibit of artworks by the world renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly is now on view. ASG members will have a guided tour of some of the artist’s 20 works that dazzle the eye with color, light and form.
After lunch, ASG will head to the Bronx Museum of the Arts, an internationally recognized cultural destination presenting innovative contemporary art exhibitions, founded in 1972. It moved into its award-winning building on the Grand Concourse, designed by Arquitectonica, in 2006. We will be guided through several exhibits including Bronx Calling: The Fourth AIM Biennial, Heidi Lau: The Primordial Molder and Ivan Velez: Bronx Haiku. Bronx Calling features the work of seventy-two emerging artists from the 2016 and 2017 classes of the Bronx Museum’s Artist in the Marketplace(AIM) program. AIM provides professional development resources to emerging artists living and working in the New York metropolitan area. More information: http://www.bronxmuseum.org/exhibitions/
