After months of preparation and a frenetic few weeks in the Haupt Conservatory, where our horticulturists were buzzing about with hollyhocks, poppies, and foxgloves, opening weekend for Impressionism: American Gardens on Canvas has finally arrived. And with the mid-spring flux of wildly blooming flowers and greening trees surrounding us, it’s a pretty good time to get reacquainted with NYBG!
Join us Saturday and Sunday for the Opening Weekend Celebration, featuring live music, plein-air painting, craft activities, dance, and a special cake tasting by some of New York’s top bakeries. It’s going to be an incredible run, and the show is only just getting started.
There’s still time to grab tickets to this weekend’s Orchid Evening, starting at 6:30 this Saturday, March 19. And if you upgrade your ticket or join the Young Garden Circle, you’ll receive access to the YGC Lounge in the Aquatic House; live DJ, open bar, snacks—you get the idea. We’ll see you in the Conservatory!

The Aquatic House in the Haupt Conservatory is an escape year round, but in winter it takes on the vibe of an oasis. Look for some of the medicinal plants featured in our Wild Medicine exhibition while you’re relaxing to the white noise of falling water.
