Visit to New York Botanical Gardens

Shortly before the holidays, twenty intrepid NCGC members caravaned to the New York Botanical Gardens to see the famed annual Holiday Train Show and to be delighted by the whimsical interpretations of New York landmarks created out of botanical materials. Bark, acorns, twigs and berries were skillfully and artfully transformed into Grand Central Terminal, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and dozens more captivating structures. After the train show, members were treated to a guided tour of Bunny Mellon’s Botanical Art, masterworks from the Oak Spring Foundation, featuring eighty important works ranging from Warhol to Redoute.
