NYC Trip: Georgia O’Keeffe’s “Visions of Hawai’i”
Please Note – this event is full
Georgia O’Keeffe’s Visions of Hawai’i at the New York Botanical Garden
Flowers and plants were subjects that engaged Georgia O’Keeffe consistently throughout her career. The NYBG presents a major exhibition exploring her immersion in the Hawaiian Islands in 1939, offering a rare focus on the paintings commissioned by Dole. Trip includes a guided tour of their conservatory, planted with a lush flower show evoking the gardens and landscapes that inspired O’Keeffe in Hawai‘i. There will be a boxed lunch served in the air-conditioned Garden Terrace Foyer. After lunch, participants can self-guide the gardens and the exhibition of 15 O’Keefe Hawaii paintings—not seen together in New York since their debut in 1940.
No refunds after May 31. Refunds subject to $20 fee.
