Spring Excursion to the Brooklyn Museum and Botanic Garden
We travel by chartered bus to the Brooklyn Museum of Art, where we get our combination tickets to the Museum and Botanic Garden. There are FIVE special exhibits at the Museum. They are: Monumental Works by El Anatsui, a Nigerian artist who converts found materials into stunning works of art, with over 12 monumental wall sculptures; American Drawings with over 100 works from the Museum’s collections; John Singer Sargent watercolor exhibit with 93 examples of his work; Kathe Kollwitz exhibit with 13 rarely shown prints; and Workt by Hand, a show of 35 quilt masterpieces from the Museum’s collections. In addition, the Arts of the America collection is newly reinstalled on the 5th floor, and The Dinner Party installation by Judy Chicago on the 4th floor is always on view.
The Botanic Garden has 52 acres with plants from around the world and also their Herb Garden, Shakespeare Garden, Japanese Pond Garden, Lily Pool and the Steinhardt Conservatory with its Bonsai Exhibit, Trail of Evolution, and three habitat pavilions.
We do not have a guided tour in either place. Lunch is on your own, with choices of the Brooklyn Museum Café or the Terrace Cafe at the Botanic Garden.
