Art comes to Life
The New York Botanical Gardens
Saturday, August 6, 2016

Join us at the gardens to see American Impressionism come to life in a captivating garden-wide exhibition. In the Conservatory, stroll through an American Impressionist garden, a stunning interpretation by Francisca Coelho of the alluring gardens that influenced iconic artists such as Childe Hassam and John Singer Sargent. In the Art Gallery, view a beautiful complementary display of more than 20 paintings and sculptures by these famed artists and their contemporaries that capture the colors, shadows, and ephemeral quality of light they observed in the natural world and infused in their distinctive imagery.

WP alumna Diane E. Israel ‘74, artist & educator, will offer an informal talk as we travel to the gardens. The bus leaves WP at 8:45 a.m. Bring a picnic lunch or purchase lunch at the gardens.
