Chihuly Artwork to Dazzle New York City Visitors by Day and Night


First Major Chihuly Garden Exhibition in New York in More Than 10 years

Grand Hyatt New York to Offer Hotel + NYBG Admission Package for Visitors


March 31, 2017. Bronx, New York. New York City’s most anticipated blockbuster art exhibition of the year is CHIHULY at The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) from April 22 through October 29, 2017. Artworks by world-renowned artist Dale Chihuly will be on view at NYBG in his first major garden exhibition in New York in more than ten years. CHIHULY, presented by Bank of America, will showcase approximately 20 installations and include 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 throughout the changing seasons from spring through fall.

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, a new monumental work inspired by his storied 1975 Artpark installation will 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.

Special weekend celebrations, films, poetry, and fun-filled art programs for kids offer colorful and imaginative tributes to nature. 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.

One of the greatest botanical gardens in the world, NYBG is a 250-acre sanctuary that lies just 20 minutes from midtown Manhattan in the Bronx and is easily accessible by public transport. The Bronx is in the midst of revitalization and was singled out by The New York Times as one of “The 52 Places to Go in 2017.” For more information about CHIHULY and to purchase tickets, please visit the Garden's web site, www.nybg.org.
