THIRTEEN's NYC-ARTS Takes Viewers Outdoors to New York Botanical Garden
NYC-ARTS, THIRTEEN's weekly arts and culture multi-platform showcase, brings arts lovers an all-access pass to the interesting, unusual and unique cultural offerings of New York City. This month, on July 6 and July 20, News Correspondent Christina Ha will bring viewers the news from the New York Botanical Garden, the iconic living museum and renowned plant research and conservation organization, located in the Bronx.
The New York Botanical Garden, distinguished as a National Historic Landmark, is the largest botanical garden in any city in the United States, and notable for its diverse landscape and extensive collections and gardens, as well as by the scope of its programs.
Co-hosted by New York Emmy Award winners Philippe de Montebello and Paula Zahn, with events around town reported by Ha, NYC-ARTS showcases both world-renowned and local, community-based arts organizations.
Along with updates on the various cultural events happening around town, Ha takes viewers inside the Garden's "CHIHULY" exhibition.
"CHIHULY" features the work of world-renowned artist Dale Chihuly, marking his first major garden exhibition in New York in more than ten years. The exhibition showcases more than 20 installations featuring his vibrant glass sculptures and includes drawings and early works that reveal the evolution and development of Chihuly's artistic process.
The July 6th program also features Paula Zahn's conversation with Louise Mirrer, President & CEO of the New-York Historical Society. The segment introduces viewers to its recently renovated 4th floor, home to the new Center for Women's History as well as a display of 100 Tiffany lamps.
"Our program is able to give our audience an insider's view of the most outstanding institutions in our region," said Joan Hershey, Editorial Director of the series. "And with the warmer weather upon us, it's the perfect time to take viewers outdoors to the New York Botanical Garden and the remarkable "Chihuly" exhibition."
