NYGB Announces Free Admission to CHIHULY Nights on Four Select Nights




U.S. veterans of any military service branch will receive free admission to CHIHULY Nights on Saturdays, May 27 and June 24, and Thursdays, July 6 and August 31.

CHIHULY, the major new exhibition at The New York Botanical Garden, presented by Bank of America, features more than 20 installations by world-renowned artist Dale Chihuly.

On CHIHULY Nights, the exhibition is infused with a magical energy as the artworks are spectacularly illuminated amid NYBG’s sweeping vistas and magnificent Conservatory. After sunset, the atmosphere is thrilling: experience the heightened drama and luminous quality of Dale Chihuly’s colors and forms when lit under the evening sky. In the Visitor Center plaza, a rotating lineup of performing artists and musicians provides entertainment while visitors relax and enjoy shopping, food, and cocktails available for purchase.

To receive their free ticket, veterans simply stop by a Garden ticket window on these dates and present their military I.D. In addition to free admission, CHIHULY Nights performances will recognize veterans with special tributes throughout the event.
