If you are a fan of the New York Botanical Garden and Claude Monet, you are in for quite a treat. The works of Claude Monet are inspirational, stemming from his love for the flowering gardens at his home in Giverny, France. Now, you too can be inspired by this intimate landscape. Through October, take a glimpse into Monet’s world at the New York Botanical Garden, where Monet’s garden has been masterfully re-created–right down to the water lilies.
Located in the Bronx, the New York Botanical Garden is a botanist’s dream–covering 250 prime, landscaped acres. The gardens are magnificent at all times of the year, but only now can one enjoy the marvelous tribute to the French artist.
Visit the New York Botanical Garden on a Saturday or Sunday to experience the full chapter of Monet’s Garden, where patrons can watch a double-feature of the films The Impressionists: Monet and Monet’s Palate. This film explores the life and influence of the world-renown impressionist, and provides a glimpse into the mind of the artist and gardener.
On the evening of Thursday, August 16, the New York Botanical Garden will be hosting a live concert with cocktails to celebrate the program “Monet Evenings”, which creates a magical night by the water lilies. For adults ages 21+, this event includes one complimentary drink and music of Gypsy Jazz great Django Reinhardt. So reserve your tickets today for this wonderful, French-inspired evening.
There’s no reason to miss out on Monet’s Garden at the New York Botanical Garden. This re-creation is an inspiring experience of its own, and is only on display through October 21st. So go see the gardens of Giverny, France right here in New York City before it’s gone for good.
