The Enid A. Haupt Conservatory is bustling with final preparations for the debut of The Orchid Show: Key West Contemporary this Saturday, March 1. Right now, rows and rows of orchids are patiently awaiting their final installation into our carefully arranged island landscape, a theme inspired by the designs of Key West’s own Raymond Jungles. While we wait, you can enjoy a peek behind the scenes in the Nolen Greenhouses, our staging area for nearly every NYBG exhibition.
Karen Daubmann, our Associate Vice President for Exhibitions, gives an overview of the orchids, as well as the myriad companion species that together will help transform the Conservatory into a modernist, Florida-style garden. It should be the sunny vacation we all need right about now!
There are only a few days left before the start of the show, and tickets for preferred time slots go quickly—don’t forget to register ahead of time. And for an extra-special visit, keep an eye out for news on the first of our Orchid Evenings, taking place the night of Saturday, March 8. Tickets to these exclusive events are already on sale!
