From April 22 through Oct. 29, Dale Chihuly will host his first major garden art exhibition in New York in more than 10 years at the New York Botanical Garden.

Bank of America is presenting the exhibition, which will showcase 20 installations and include drawings and early works that reveal the evolution and development of Chihuly’s artistic process through his career. The vistas feature Chihuly’s signature shapes in vibrant colors.

Weekend celebrations, films, poetry and art programs for kids will feature colorful and imaginative tributes to nature. On CHIHULY Nights the artworks will be illuminated against NYBG’s vistas and conservatory.

NYBG is known as one of the greatest botanical gardens in the world, totaling 250 acres. NYBG is 20 minutes from midtown Manhattan in the Bronx and can be accessible via public transportation.

The Grand Hyatt New York partnered with NYBG to provide visitors with a lodging and admission package. Connected to Grand Central Station, Grand Hyatt New York provides easy access to NYBG. Features of this package include 10 percent on certain rooms, roundtrip tickets for two to NYBG, admission tickets for two to CHIHULY and shopping and dining discounts at NYBG.

The Metro-North Railroad is offering a package for visitors as well that includes an All-Garden Pass and a round-trip train ticket from Grand Central Terminal to the Botanical Garden Station in just 20 minutes. Visit Metro-North Railroad for more details.

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
