Autumn is one of the most dramatic times to see New York City’s blockbuster art exhibition of the year, CHIHULY , which runx through October 29, 2017 at The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG). As the foliage changes and the summertime crowds taper off, the garden’s constantly evolving natural environment is the backdrop for artist Dale Chihuly’s first major garden exhibition in New York in more than 10 years.
Most magical of all are CHIHULY Nights, when the artworks are spectacularly illuminated. In the Visitor Center plaza, a rotating lineup of performing artists and musicians provides entertainment while guests relax and enjoy shopping, food, and Avión Tequila cocktails available for purchase. CHIHULY Nights continue Thursdays–Saturdays in October from 6:30–10:30 p.m.
