Breathtaking works of art that dazzle with color, light, and form. The exhibit showcases more than 20 installations and includes drawings and early works that reveal the evolution and development of Chihuly’s artistic process during his celebrated career. Set within NYBG’s landmark landscape and buildings, this sensory-filled exhibition is a must-see throughout the changing seasons.

More about the concert:
Celebrating the first 100 years of jazz, this stunning all-star retrospective explores the music’s international roots and influences from traditional folk songs to early American jazz pioneers such as Scott Joplin, WC Handy, Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, Bessie Smith and beyond. 
This cross-contemporary and cross-cultural extravaganza features a galaxy of jazz stars including the brilliant young vocalist Brianna Thomas, trumpeter Dominick Farinacci, master New Orleans clarinetist Evan Christopher, and pianist Dan Tepfer.
