Join the staff of Berkshire Botanical Garden and landscape architect David Dew Bruner for a special tour of the New York Botanical Garden at the height of its early summer bloom. In addition to the amazing gardens and plant specimens (with expert plant advice provided by BBG staff), this trip is scheduled to view the much anticipated installations created specifically for NYBG’s landscape and architecture by world-renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly. David Dew Bruner, an award-winning landscape architect and fine artist, will be our tour guide for this portion of the trip. He will show us the dramatic installations inspired by Chihuly’s exploration of the contrast between glass and environment. Physical expressions of the light, the Chihuly works will be distributed across NYBG’s 250-acre National Historic Landmark landscape, including within the Garden’s Haupt Conservatory, itself considered a work of glass art. This trip, a great way to spend a day with like-minded garden and art lovers, is not to be missed.
