Gardens and Paintings and Water Lilies, Oh My!
Well, we may have to take a trip to New York City in the next few months to see this. For any Impressionism fans out there, New York Botanical Gardens is hosting a tribute to Claude Monet, whose inspiration as a painter came from his extensive garden in Giverny, France.
According to the website, “This stunning tribute to French Impressionist Claude Monet showcases a seasonally changing interpretation of the garden that inspired his art. In addition, two rarely seen paintings by the artist—one of which has never been shown in the United States—will be on exhibition, and films, concerts, poetry readings, and hands-on art for kids will provide rich insight into the life and work of this renowned master.”
The exhibit runs from May 19th to October 21st, and the 150 species of flowers on display will change with the seasons, so be sure to check it out if you are in the area!
