The Monet’s Garden exhibition opens today at the New York Botanical Garden and runs through October 21st.
According to the New York Botanical Garden’s 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.
Claude Monet was an avid gardener who once reflected that perhaps flowers were the reason he became a painter. This exhibition explores the legacy of his idyllic garden in Giverny, France.
Here’s a short video from The New York Botanical Garden showing how they constructed the Monet Garden exhibition:
