Garden Luncheon 2023
Due to overwhelming demand, tickets are Sold Out!
The Museum’s annual Garden Luncheon is one of our most joyful and beloved events as we welcome spring with flowers, food, and fancy hats! Gather your friends and join us Friday, June 9 for a day of garden-centered delights – including a delectable lunch under the tent, a raffle to please every green thumb, and a dynamic speaker!
We’ll hear from historian Victoria Johnson whose book, American Eden: David Hosack, Botany, and Medicine in the Garden of the Early Republic, was a 2018 finalist for the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize. Ms. Johnson will share the intriguing backstory of the doctor who tended to both Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton after their infamous duel and then went on to found the new nation’s first public botanical garden and New York’s first museum of fine art.
Thank you for your support! We can’t wait to see you in your garden finery at this SOLD OUT event.
