This year marks the 18th annual Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden, and you won’t want to miss this beautiful exhibition!
Each year, the New York Botanical Garden showcases one of the world’s most delicate flowers in a special Orchid Show that takes over and completely transforms the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. The guest designer for the 2020 Orchid Show is artistic director and floral designer, Jeff Leatham—according to NYBG description, he’s the famed artistic director of the Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris and floral designer to the stars.
Titled “Jeff Leatham’s Kaleidoscope,” the exhibit will be full of bold colors and captivating installations where each gallery of the exhibition will be transformed into a different color experience, “like looking into a kaleidoscope.”
As Jeff Leatham says:
“Color is the first and most important aspect of my work, always. I want every gallery to be a different color experience,…like looking into a kaleidoscope.”
Thousands of dramatically displayed orchids will be on view at the NYBG Conservatory in a series of living sculptures, like arches of deliberate hues delivering a kaleidoscopic tunnel effect. Examples of some of the rarest and most iconic orchids will be available to see from the Garden’s collection.
We recommend that you try and make some time in your busy schedule over the next few months to catch this stunning show that’ll take us colorfully into spring.
The exhibit will be on display from Saturday, February 15, 2020 – Sunday, April 19, 2020. Find our more and grab tickets here.
