A Summer Exhibition at The NYBG

If you haven't already, there are still a few days left to see The New York Botanical Garden's summer exhibition - Around the Table: Stories of the Foods We Love. The event runs through Sunday, September 11.

This major, institution-wide presentation examines the art and science of foods and food traditions through the years. Walking through the historic Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, this show features expansive displays of living edible plants - from dietary staples to culinary flavor providers. Throughout the NYBG's 250 acres, there are also art and science installations, family programming events, and artist-designed tables highlighting notable food plant histories and cultural traditions. It's an interesting way to appreciate the many plants that are grown for the dishes we consume and love.

Enjoy these photos. And, if you cannot make it to this show, perhaps you can attend the NYBG's next exhibit - KIKU, a spotlight on Japanese chrysanthemums that have been expertly trained over the past year into modern and ancient styles. It runs October 1st through October 30th.
